When I am not teaching, I enjoy playing board games with my family, reading books and painting my nails. Some of my favorite books include: The Hate U Give, Six of Crows, and the Ranger’s Apprentice Series.
Science 8 engages students in the three dimensions (science practices, disciplinary core ideas, and crosscutting concepts) of learning as identified by the Nebraska College and Career Ready Standards for Science. The topics include forces and interactions, waves and electromagnetic radiation, energy, heredity: inheritance and variation of traits, biological evolution, space systems, and history of Earth. This course provides the foundations for other science coursework.
