Mrs. Mariah Gundersen
Today is a great day to be Awesome!
This will be my 18th year of teaching science and this year I will be teaching all 6th grade general science. 2019-2020 marks my 5th year as a Riverhawk, where for the first 2 years I taught 8th grade Physical Science and the last few years I've been teaching 6th grade. Before that, I've taught at: Heritage HS where I taught Biology and Environemental Explorations; the Smithsonian Naturalist Center as the teacher naturalist; and while in Winchester I taught at Daniel Morgan MS where I taught 7th and 8th grade science.
I am a native of Pennsylvania where I went to the University of Pittsburgh. HAIL PITT! I moved to Virginia in 2001 and live locally with my husband, daughter, pet turtle "Lucy" and a bunch of fish.
I'm glad to be here and extremely excited to teach our 6th graders! GO RIVERHAWKS!
