• Welcome to Luella Middle School and welcome to 6th grade Science. I am excited to be back in the classroom, collaborating and working with your student(s) as they engage in scientific and engineering practices. My professional and academic experiences will provide a learning environment that fosters independent learning and thinking, community building and collaboration, and a love for learning and exploration. I am extremely passionate about science education and am excited to be back in the K-12 classroom teaching middle school science. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences and learning from my students' knowledge and experiences. I believe we are all learners who have something to learn and something to contribute to others' learning.
