Getting to know your 8th grade science teacher!
Welcome to 8th grade at the Hill! I'm so excited to facilitate lots of fun, exciting, and thought-provoking experiences for you!
This is my 9th year teaching 8th grade at Stone Hill. I have also taught one year of 6th grade here and have also student taught Earth Science at LCHS and 7th grade life science at Blue Ridge Middle, but 8th grade physical science is my passion and will always have my heart. I love it and I love sharing this passion with my students.
I am also a big baseball fan (Go Baltimore Orioles!) This year, I would expect a lot of sports references, not only because of my love of the O's, but also because sports are a great example of the physics concepts we will be investigating this year.
Not a fan of sports? That's ok! I have a wide variety of interests, just like you! I love to read (Harry Potter by J.K Rowling and the Green Rider series by Kristin Britain are my favorites, but I'm always looking for new book recommendations), Doctor Who and Sherlock just to name a few! I will try to incorporate a wide variety of interests into class to help us all get the most out of our time together!
This year will be awesome if we remember to respect all, behave safely, put forth our best effort, and most importantly have a great attitude! Welcome to the land of DeWeesium at Stone Hill!
