Let me introduce myself. I will be teaching 7th grade advanced, 7th grade general and 8th grade general science classes here at OVMS. I have been teaching science at Orchard Valley for the last twelve years and I am very excited to start the new school year.
I am a former medical lab technician and earned a bachelor's degree in Biology. I also completed my secondary education certification through Rowan University in 2003. I am married to an electrician and have two children. My daughter is currently living in Colorado and my son attends University of Delaware. I enjoy the beach, hockey games and traveling.
There will be hands on lab activities, technology infused lessons and projects along the way. This year will be challenging but rewarding as we journey through our units of study. Organization and a good work ethic will be your key to success. I am looking forward to getting to know each one of you over the next ten months!
We are transitioning the science curriculum over the next few years in a way to ensure that all required units of study will be covered for each grade level. By year 3 the following units of study will be in place:
