Hello and welcome to my Science classroom.  I am so excited to share my love of science with you this year. I thought you would like to know a little bit about me, so here you go. 

The 2017-2018 school year will be my 18th year here at Metcalfe County Middle School.  I was very fortunate to begin my teaching career here and I am proud to be a Hornet. 

Science?  Why science you say?  I say....why not!  We are all curious, its just human nature.  That's exactly what science is.  The desire to know/learn the how, why, and the what ifs. 

My background:

I am a mother to 2 wonderful kids  

     Sarah who is starting her first year of college at Lindsey Wilson College

     Colton who is starting his 7th grade year. 

My husband works in the Public Safety office at Lindsey Wilson College

My daddy was the pastor of a Nazarene church in Adair County for 30+ years. 

Hobbies:

Love my horses!  They fascinate me, though I am highly allergic.  Some things are just worth suffering for.

My kids are/have been involved in Marching band so I have fallen in love with that aspect of music (I mostly just feel a lot of pride when watching them perform)

I love to draw and paint (I waited way to many years after high school to take this hobby up again, so its like I'm learning all over again)

I am super excited to teach/learn about a few things....(yes I fear you will tell me at some point that I am way to excited about a topic, but that's ok.  I just love science)

EX:

----I have a love/hate relationship with storms (I'll admit I am terrified of storms, but at the same time I am fascinated by the forces of nature and what they can do)

---I love ROCKS!  yes you heard me correctly......I am fascinated by rocks.  (well geology in general)  It was not a subject I enjoyed for many years, but something just clicked and I began to realize how amazingly this world works  How things can change and reform into such wonderful, beautiful, magical things......  

----There are others, but those two are the big ones for me.  What science topic excites you?    Learning is so much better when you find joy in something.  Lets enjoy a great year together.
