Life Science

Welcome to my home page.  This is my 24th year teaching 7th grade Life Science at THMS.  My room is filled with living or once living things, including a 75 gallon saltwater tank with fish, a shrimp, a sea star, and a crab that is very hard to find!!

This website will focus on Life Science class at THMS. Life science is the study of living things and how they interact. It covers such topics as the characteristics, classification, and behaviors of organisms, and the interactions they have with each other and with the natural environment.
