Welcome to 8th Grade Science!

A little about Mrs. Lemont:

This is my 10th year teaching in the Kittery School District and my 7th year teaching at Shapleigh School.  Before becoming a teacher, I did research at a small, Maine based biotech company that made controls for genetic testing.  I have a bachelor's degree in Biotechnology from RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology), which means that I know how to manipulate DNA from mammalian cells, bacterial cells and viruses.  Before moving to Maine, I helped conduct research for a genomic study of age related hearing loss.  I grew up in a small town in Western New York.
