Science Journal Sharing - Beginning January 15th and 16th, students will be reviewing thier science journals with you. This needs to happen sometime after the thursday or Friday class, but before the next Monday or Tuesday class. The prupose of this is for you to know what their exploring in class and to plan any acitivities that may support their learning. There are talking points in the back pocket of their journals. Here are the talking points if you need them: /uploads/1/3/3/1/13312187/science_journal_conversation_guide.docx

About Me: I am a third generation Angeleno. My family and I live and work in Hawthorne. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Geology and worked as a field geologist for Tyco International before transitioning into education. A few of my favorite things are: Exploring places I've never been, gardening, cooking, finger picking guitar, humming, watching kids discover something new, spending time with my familly.............
As a community I hope that we can: try and value the student for who they are now, not who they will be next year. I hope that we can value the student for what they are able to do, not what they are not able to do. I hope that we can help students find happiness in the moment, not wait until they’ve jumped through a thousand hoops to get to it. I hope that we can help students love their lives at school, live each year to its fullest and grow into their own personalities. I hope that we can accept our students for who they are and not blame them or their previous teachers for not making them who we wish they were.
