Welcome!

Welcome to science class!

On this website you will find resources and reminders to help you succeed in class. All students, remember that you can find your daily assignments through Google Classroom. You are responsible for catching up on any work you miss due to an absence. Contact a study buddy or visit Office Hours if you are unable to find an assignment in Google Classroom.

Notes for Parents and Guardians

Parents and guardians, please make a login for Infinite Campus if you have not done so already. You can use the site to check your student's grades frequently. I update grades every Friday, barring special circumstance.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please contact me.

Class Supplies

Students should make every effort to come to class on time with all class supplies, including:

  • class planner or timetracker
  • 100-page science notebook
  • folder or binder section for HW and handouts
  • a blue or black pen - no pencils!

Students may also choose to bring tape, glue sticks, highlighters, scissors, a ruler, a calculator, or other general supplies. All tools are available in class for students to borrow.

Class Rules

  • Respect yourself and others at all times
  • Respect class materials and space
  • Listen to and follow directions and safety protocols
  • No gum, food, or drinks other than water
  • Turn in your own work

About Ms. Strong

I was born and raised in San Jose, attending schools in SJUSD. I went to Mills College in Oakland for undergrad, earning a B.A. in Biopsychology, then to San Jose State University for my teaching credential in science with specialization in biology. This is my second year at Morrill, and I love it!

Outside of school, I sing with the Rainbow Women's Chorus, which is co-directed by Morrill's previous choir teacher, Ms. Wagner! I also enjoy taking my cat Whisket out for walks with my wife, who is a social studies teacher in ARUSD. If you like cats too, you can follow Whisket on Instagram.
