Mr. Karl Topping

Hello. I am Karl Topping, 6th/7th/8th grade Gifted and Talented Science here at HMS. Once you get past the self-depreciating humor, you will see that I am a raging egomaniac. Naw, that's not true -- just checking if people actually read these! :) Anyways, I have been a science teacher for 15 years now (I think), with 9 of them being a G/T specialists. I strive to challenge the students to reach the pinnacle of their potential in the realm of science. I live, breathe, eat & sleep this stuff, and I hope that I am successful at instilling the same ethusiasm in your student.  Looking forward to another great year!
