My name is Michala Mills and will be teaching 6th Earth Science and 7th Life Science. My passion is providing phenomenon from our world to explain the fantastic curriculum that we cover in the classroom. Science is an amazing subject! To be succesful a student merely requires curiosity and a will to find the answer.
There are examples everywhere we look; floating the Boise River, traveling through Denali National Park in Alaska, even sitting in the lawns of the school, or looking out the window. With this in mind, science is available where-ever we are so I do not assign homework. The only work students should ever have from Science, is incomplete work from the day or to study for quizzes/assessments. All handouts are updated to the calendar daily along with the learning target for the day. Please feel free to practice these targets and continue the journey of understanding Earth at home! Past students have found great PRIDE in being able to identify the moon phases, interactions, and other examples that they then share with the classroom to further our learning as a team!
As for myself, I enjoy the outdoors (hiking, biking, camping, swimming,..), have near-equal love for the DC and Marvel Universes, a passion for animals, and love to hear of dog friendly hiking areas to visit.
