Welcome to 6th grade science! I am really looking forward to this year and helping you rise to your full potential while we interact with the world of science. It is my goal for you to feel successful and positive about classroom learning and making friends, while building a caring and safe environment. I am thrilled to be your teacher, and I expect great things from our class this year!

Please don’t hesitate to contact me, speak with me after class or after school. I am here for you!
