Class overview

Welcome to 6th-grade science! Our focus this school year will be developing our skills as critical thinkers, scientists, and problem solvers. The skills developed in class will prepare you for success outside of the classroom.

Discussion and collaboration will be a big part of this class. Lab work requires collaboration.

There are 7 Units that will take us up to the last day in the school year.

It will be important for us to work on building life skills this year. Just like the Infinity Stones they will be difficult to collect, but with all of them you can reshape your future!

About me

l am looking forward to being your science teacher. We will explore everything from scientific investigation to the vastness of the universe. Sixth grade science is really the best year in science as it lets us dabble in all areas of science including chemistry, physics, and some earth science. Space exploration and weather/climate are my favorite topics we will get to cover this year. I went to Page County High School then James Madison University for both my undergraduate and graduate studies in Middle Education. Throughout my time at JMU I worked full time either as an Apple Campus Rep or computer repair technician. As you can probably tell technology is a passion of mine and I love working on ways we can better our world (both in school and out) with technology. This is highlighted by one of my favorite quotes- Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected. - Steve Jobs.
