WELCOME, SCIENTISTS AND EXPLORERS!


I teach Science for both my class and for Mr. Naylor's class. We will switch two days a week. Mr. Naylor will be teaching Social Studies. We will be incorporating many STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) investigations during our units. We will work hard to expand our observation and inquiry skills throughout the year! Students will also have a Project Lead the Way class with Mrs. Bronk two days a week! Exciting!!
