October PD

For those of you who attended the Office of Teaching and Learning October 20th PD, we had several science offerings: Gizmos (C.E.R.), PASCO probeware (temperature sensor), Biology AIR help, and Student Engagement in your classroom. You can access the resources at:

Departments / Curriculum / Teachers


under Secondary Curriculum PD Days 2017-18

If you are attending the final PD on November 7th, I encourage you to attend the Gizmo training.

Safety Matters

If you have any old, unused chemicals for disposal, please contact me for a disposal sheet to complete. Once finished, contact me again and I will get in touch with you. Thank you for working to keep our labs safe! If you have not completed the mercury check sheets, please get them to me A.S.A.P. Thank you!
