Welcome to 8th grade Science!  This course will continue to build on concepts from previous science classes, and serves as an introduction to high school chemistry and Physics.  This is my fifth year with the county.  I received my Bachelors degree in Environmental Science from VA Tech in 2001, and worked in Water Quality Regulation and Chemical Testing for many years before deciding to switch careers to teaching.  I love chemistry and physics, and I try to put as many hands on activities into the classroom as possible.  To me, that is the fun of teaching Science!
