Welcome to 8th Grade HMS Mad Science! This is going to be an amazing year for us! 8th grade science is all about Chemistry, Space, Earth Science and LABS! Check back here frequently get all the latest information on what's going on in Science Class! Please e-mail me if you have any questions.
This is my 5th year teaching public school and you will soon find out that I am a HUGE Science nerd. I LOVE all things Science! I was a Marine Science major at University of Miami and finished my degree at UTSA so that I could work at Sea World San Antonio. I’ve raced mountain bikes and was a competitive runner until last year when I started doing fitness competitions.
I’ve been married 18 years and have two wonderful children. My son Ian is a Junior and my daughter Ella is a Freshman at Legacy Early College HS in Taylor. My husband is the managing partner at Wilco Recycling.
I also love:
· *Working out! You will find me most mornings at the gym.
· *Coffee and chocolate – YUM!
· *Going to the movies – I love movies where things blow up or Sci-Fi.
· *Cooking – I am a healthy food gourmet.
· *Going to downtown Austin. Town Lake and Whole Foods is my happy place.

16 days of school left! After our Rocket Project, we are doing 10 Days of Super Fun Science Labs! If possible, we would really love for some of our amazing parents to help with some lab materials. I have already purchased much of what we need myself but to do some of the really cool labs, we also need:
5 hot glue guns with glue sticks (I can return these)
24 sleeves of Mentos (you know where this is going smile emoticon
J-lube or Glycerin (can be purchased on Amazon)
The labs are:
2.CO2 is heavier than air
3.Making Square bubbles
4.Dry Ice Smoke Rings
5.Mentos and Soda Experiment
7.Come Fly with Me
8. Desktop Bubble Experiment
9. Dry Ice Ice Cream (I may save this til the last week)
10. Air Pucks
The kids have worked so hard this year - I would love to give them some Super Science Fun for the next 3 weeks!
