My name is Ms. Miranda and I am overjoyed to be your 8th grade science teacher this year! I am sure you are just as excited as I am about learning Physical and Biological cross-cutting concepts and phenomena. I believe we can achieve anything by working together and my goal is to guide you to think like a scientist with high-order logical and critical thinking skills that can be utilized inside and outside of the classroom. I believe you will all end this school year successfully and have learned more while having fun doing it.
I am honored to have the opportunity to make a positive impact on your child’s life this coming school year. I believe that collaborating with one another is vital to your child’s success. I would like you to view our relationship with one another as teammates. I invite you to join the education team and encourage you to be involved in your child’s school life. I will always be on your child’s corner, rooting for their development and growth academically.
I believe that students have the right to learn and the teacher has the right to teach. I will provide a safe environment where students feel valued and comfortable. Our classroom is a community, we are all here to enjoy learning from one another. It is important to continuously cultivate respect and responsibility.
This year we will be diving into the physical and biological aspects of science. We will endure physics's phenomena of energy, motion, and waves. Then, we will learn Biology’s theory of evolution and Darwinism’s Natural Selection which introduces the students to traits and evidence with fossils analysis. Last, we will end the school year with astronomy by studying the Earth , the Universe and our place, as humans, in it.
