Mr. C. Brock Bourassa

Welcome to Earth Science, where we study all sorts of cool things about the planet we live on, and the universe that we are a part of! My name is Christopher "Brock" Bourassa, I have a B.S. in Biology from the University of Maryland, College Park, and also studied Tropical Ecology in Costa Rica with Duke University.  I was a United States Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines were I worked in Environmental Education.  I received my teaching license through the Career Switcher Program at Shenandoah University.

You may remember me from last year, when I was part of the 8th grade Science team at River Bend Middle School, and I am excited to follow so many of my favorite students to Potomac Falls this year.

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.
