Dear Students and Families,
I teach Biology, Oceanography, and Marine Biology. Students in Biology learn about living systems such as organisms, and populations, and ecosystems. First semester is focused on ecosystems and living things influence on Earth systems. Second semester is focused on inheritance and how populations change over time.
Students in Oceanography learn earth science, physics, and chemistry concepts as they apply to Earth's oceans. The first unit focuses on physical properties of the ocean and the second unit focuses on the ocean's influence on weather and climate.
Students in Marine Biology learn about organisms in the ocean and marine ecology. First quarter focuses on biodiversity and zoology (invertebrates and vertebrates) and the second quarter focuses on marine habitats and human impact on those habitats.
All of the assignments and important dates can be accessed by students using Google Classroom
. Most assignments are submitted electronically using Google Classroom. Materials for student notebooks can be printed using the links found in Google Classroom. You must be logged in to your school Google account
to access these resources. Parents can request regular updates from Google Classroom. If you are interested in regular updates, please email
me with that request. I will then send you instructions from Google on how to sign up.
If you were absent, please access Google Classroom to see what you missed before coming to class. If you need internet access, you can use one of my devices or the library computers before school.
