Back to School Night Video - 8th Grade, 6th Grade
Hello. My name is Theresa Schneider. I am excited and proud to be your 8th grade science teacher. I have been teaching since 1991 (lol You do the math). Most of my experience has been in the wonderful world of Middle School. I still love it and continue to learn all the time. I started teaching in LA and Perris, but most of my time has been here at my "home away from home" Thompson. I hold a BA in Child Development from Cal State Fullerton, a MA in Teaching from National University, and a National Board Certificate in Early Adolescence Science. I also serve as a district Mentor Leader and Teacher. I get to teach and learn from some of the best new teachers at the Middle and High School levels. I believe in proactive communication with parents, hands on and relevant learning for kids, and the growth of adolescent minds. Middle school is an unique time in a person's life where change is the norm and playing is still something valued.

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose holy curiosity." - Albert Einstein
