Welcome back!!! I am very excited to start a new school year with a fresh crop of new students eager to learn all about the wonderful world of science! This year we will be learning about plant and animal cells (the basic structures of life), ecosystems, rocks/minerals/fossils found in Arkansas, and the solar system!
Take a look around my website to learn more about me as a teacher and the 5th grade science curriculum and please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
