"Equipped with his five senses, 

         man explores the universe around him 

          and calls the adventure science.”

    ― Edwin Hubble

   Welcome to 5th and 6th grade science!  I am excited to begin the 2016 school year.  I have been a familiar face at Park for many years teaching both 5th grade and 6th grade science. 
   I graduated from Arizona State University with Bachelor of  Science  degree in Environmental Resources.  For many years, I was employed as a laboratory technician/medical technologist before obtaining my teaching certificate and lastly,  my Masters in Education. 

   The science curriculum is challenging and I emphasize science vocabulary as a an important method to mastering the concepts.  Ample classroom time if provided for assignments. However, studying vocabulary at home should be a daily task.  Please encourage your student to discuss the science notes, and activities with you.  

   Attendance and proper behavior are crucial components to the learning process. It is important that your student is on time, attends school every day and remains during the entire class period.
