Welcome to my class page. This is my 6th year at Woodbridge Middle School teaching 8th grade Physical Science. My goal is for all of my students to succeed in my class. Please email me if you have any questions or concerns. 


 

Office 365

Students will be using Office 365 for this class.  Accounts will be set up at the beginning of the year.  Students can log in at https://login.microsoftonline.com. Students have access to study guide keys and assignments in their office 365 teams. 


 

Virtual Learning - Updated 3/23/2020

Students will have access to study guides for all previously covered units under the files and documents section of this page. There is also a file of online instructional resources for middle school science for parents and students. Students can also click on the useful links section for practice and review websites. 

All new assignments and communications going forward will be posted into Microsoft Teams, which students can log into using their office 365 email and password. Click the waffle in the top left corner and click teams. Students will also be emailed information as well. Previous assignments (calculating speed lab and simple machines project) will be due 4/14 and directions are in teams. If you have any problems, please email me and I will respond during normal school hours. Thank you.
