Welcome to 7th grade Science!!!
This is my 8th year teaching 7th grade science at the best middle school in Murrieta - Thompson!!!. Science has always been my first love and my goal is to instill a love for science in all my students while also helping them become caring human beings. Aside from teaching 7th grade science, I have been on the district Science Steering Committee for the past five years to help roll out the Next Generation Science Standards.
I have been married for 32 1/2 years and have two children, a son and a daughter. I LOVE animals and environmental issues so I am happy that our new science standards for 7th grade are covering many aspects of the world's environmental concerns. I have a passion for Orangutan's and I am involved with the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation and One More Generation, who are trying to save these fabulous animals.
