Mrs. Carrie Hanousek

 Welcome to 6th grade Earth Science!

Hello!  I am so excited to be your science teacher this year (2020-2021).  We have a lot of exciting things to learn about the interactions of Earth's atmosphere (air), geosphere(land), hydrosphere(water) and biosphere(living things).  I have been busy this summer learning the technology tools that will make learning interactive and provide you with opportunities for collaboration with your new classmates.  This year will be different due to Covid-19, but I will do my best to make it a great year of learning and fun!  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Looking forward to meeting you all soon.

---Mrs. Hanousek
