Welcome to a new school year here at University Academy. I am very excited about meeting you and being your Science teacher this year. This is my third year
 at University Academy and I'm proud to be a Gryphon. I am a graduate of Truman State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science and a Minor in Business Administration. I also received my master's degree in secondary education with an emphasis in middle school education this past year. I enjoyed studying biology in college, and I think science is a hands-on way of learning things about the world. I am excited about this upcoming 2019-2020 school year and hope that you are too! In my free time I like being outdoors, going to the movies, and spending time with my wife, Alison. 
Eighth grade science will help your students answer the why and how’s of science with interactive, investigative and animated problem solving activities that will capture your students’ imagination. It is my goal to make this class as fun and informative for your child as possible. My door is always open starting at 7:15 a.m. every morning till around 3:30 p.m. In addition to meeting the state science standards, this course is designed to provide hands-on experiential learning. Students should expect to find the curriculum rigorous and engaging as the course will include collaborative work and project-based learning. This course will help your students by preparing them to become better note and test takers.
