Hello. My name is Gillian Canham.  I am a science teacher at PVM.  This is my first year at Park View and I am very excited to be here.  I graduated from SUNY Oneonta with a BS in Biology and worked in the medical field before changing careers and becoming a teacher. I enjoy reading, horseback riding and walking my dogs. 
In class we will have a quiz every Friday.  Please check the calendar for homework assignments and project due dates. Please check your child's planner daily. We have been learning about Ecosystems,  Your child should have a packet #9 containing vocabulary, notes and homework assignments. This week we will start learning about Biomes and will be starting an inclass biome poster project.
Below are some websites that the students can use to practice their science skills.

Please contact me via email at gcanham@mcpsweb.org  if  you have any questions or concerns. You can also reach me by phone at 447 - 3761 during my planning periods.  Again, I look forward to working with your child this year.  Let's make it a wonderful school year!
