PFHS Mission Statement
I love exploring Virginia, this is at Breaks Interstate Park.
  • Welcome to Earth Science, the study of the natural systems that govern our planet! My name is Amelia Zarate, I have a B.S. in Natural Resource Management from Colorado State University and a Masters of Education from Regent University. 

    All class information and materials are located on the Schoology course page, accessible through LCPS Go. Your success as a student is my priority and I'm always happy to help you out, but I won't know you need it if you don't ask! If you ever need any extra help beyond what you're getting in class, please drop by before school or make an appointment to meet during my planning blocks.

    1st- Earth Science in 241

    Trying to figure out how to get into the online textbook? You can either go to "Discovery Ed" on LCPS Go or you can go to and tell it to "Log in using Clever". 

    Other questions? Generally, the best way to reach me outside of class is by email:, I will make every effort to respond within one school day.
