Below is a copy of the letter sent home with all of my students.
Ms. Mobley’s Science Class
My name is Jennifer Mobley and I will be your child’s science teacher while Mrs. McQueen is taking a leave to take care of her family. I graduated from the University of North Alabama with a degree in Elementary Education. I am a member of the National Science Teachers Association and love science. I look forward to sharing my science knowledge with the students.
In the next few weeks, we will be finishing the unit on oceans and the Earth’s biomes. Afterwards, we will be exploring catastrophic events. This will encompass the following content: weather patterns, earthquakes, volcanoes, and other aspects of weather. During this unit, we will be utilizing AMSTI and other hands on learning techniques.
I have the same expectations as Mrs. McQueen such as the science notebook that will be used to record experiments, activities, and notes in class. In-class work, experiments, labs, and test will be weighted equally during the grading process.
Feel free to contact me with questions and concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the coming days, my blog will be available on the Whitesburg Middle School website. On the blog, I will be posting assignments and classroom announcements so that you can be aware of classroom activities.
I have enjoyed getting to know your students these past weeks and I am excited to continue exploring the science world with your children!
