Mrs. Claudia Zimmer

Welcome to Our Online Environmental Science Lab!

Check the Announcements page to see what's happening!!!

My name is Mrs. Zimmer. This will be my tenth year teaching Science at Spring ISD. I taught Elementary and Middle School Science, and now I belong to the CTE Dept, teaching Environmental Science, under the Agricultural Science Pathway.  I have taught in Massachusetts, Louisiana, and in my home country, Brazil, before moving to Texas. I have also lived in Canada for 6 winters (Yes, I do count by winters; if you have ever spent a winter in Canada, you know why). 

I went to college and graduate school in Brazil (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul). I double-majored in Biology and Education. My Master's Degree is in Genetics and Biostatistics.

Science has been my passion since I was a little girl. I decided at 9 that I wanted to be a Geneticist and went on to find out what degree I needed to do that. After working as a scientist for a few years, I realized that I wanted to share my passion with other people and the research lab was very lonely place, so I decided to go into teaching. I never looked back!

In my free time, I like to travel, do pull-tab crochet and read. Oh, and I love frogs!!!!!
 
 
 
 

Expectations

I have very high expectations for my students when they are in the Science Lab (and in other places in the school). Most importantly, try their best and have fun.

We go through all expectations in the beginning of the school year and everyone has to live up to them at all times. Science is all about following directions and staying safe and, without those, there is no fun (the best part). Visit Class Rules and Procedures for more information.
 



How YOU can help your child succeed in Science

If you have any questions you can call me, e-mail me, or meet me in person. The best way to help your child reach success is to be involved. Practice science at home: cooking is kitchen science; invite your child to cook with you! Ask your child about what they did in school. If you have internet, explore the web. You can find worksheets, games, and experiments. Go to "Interesting Places" to see a list of websites that are worth visiting. Watch Science shows on TV; you'll love them!
