Welcome to Mrs. Carpenter's Class Website. The purpose of this page is to provide class information for students and parents. Class lesson plans, documents, assessments, announcements, links, etc. will be available for both my Physical and Honors Physical Science classes.

About Me
Born and raised in little old Chardon Ohio, I attended Chardon Local Schools and graduated from CHS in 1998. From there I went to Ohio University and earned my B.S. in Integrated Science Education in 2003. In 2009 I enrolled in an online program and earned my Master's Degree in Teaching and Learning with Technology from Iowa's Ashford University. As I continue to work I am always seeking learning opportunities that enhance my science and teaching knowledge.

Teaching Experience:
I received my first full-time teaching job as an Earth Science teacher at Tallwood High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia. After a year there I came home to Ohio to get married and landed a job at Lake Catholic High School teaching physical science, biology, and chemistry. After five years there I had the opportunity to apply to my Alma Mater. I was so excited to accept the physical science teacher position at Chardon High School 5 years ago. I currently teach Physical Science, Honors Physical Science, and am an adviser for Freshmen Mentoring. 

Personal Life:
I have been happily married to my husband, who is also a Chardon Alum, since 2006. We currently live in Chardon with our daughters Tatum and Teagan and our yellow lab Parker. I love spending time with my family as well as running, exercising, shopping and hanging with my girl friends. Lastly, I love to learn!!!
