Welcome to my webpage! 

Here you will find updates, reminders, celebrations and missed assignments (eventually).  Please check back often!!


- You are more than welcome to take home your comp book and study (I highly encourage it!) BUT you MUST bring it back to school with you the next day.  Otherwise, you face receiving a negative with no warning because we use our comp books DAILY.

Unit 7 vocab quiz THIS Friday, 1/12/18

Unit 7 Unit Test: 1/26/18

1/11/18: I added a VERY helpful website for Plate Tectonics and all that is involved with this concept.  Please go to top left and click on “Educational Websites” and there you will find “Plate Tectonics!!!” in red.  Click on that and it will take you to another webpage.  There is some AWESOME graphics, videos and information there that will help you study this subject.  Yes, I have, and will, use some of this information during class, but it is nice to be able to have it whenever you need it. 

1/19/18: We started Topography yesterday.  We watched a very good and informative video on topographic maps and it is on my Educational Websites (found on the upper left corner).  We wrote down the Topographic Map Rules in our comp book.  Topography Vocabulary is here! Click the link below:

**Unit 12 test is scheduled for May 4th**

***Due to numerous students cheating on the Units 10/11 test on Friday, April 6th, the 8th grade science teachers and administration have decided to give a retest this coming Monday, 4/16.  If the student studied and did well the first go ‘round, then they should have no problem studying and going over the content in their comp book.  We need this new data so that we can concentrate on the concepts the students need to study for the STAAR test. ***

If you were absent Thursday 4/12/18 due to the track meet or illness, the following link contains the notes we took:

If you were absent Friday, 4/13/18, the following links are the notes we took in class and you need to copy them down in your comp book so that you can study them for the test on May 4th.
