Dear Parents and Students,




Welcome Video 


Welcome to 7th Grade students at Murphey Middle School! I am honored to have your child in my science/social studies class, and I am excited to work with you and your child throughout the 20-21 school year. I believe that Life Science and Social Studies is an extremely engaging and interesting subject.  It increases our awareness and knowledge of the world around us and opens doors to new and exciting discoveries. 


This year your son or daughter will be using a variety of textbooks, online resources, worksheets, reading comprehensive literacy, videos, and instructional materials to help them achieve proficiency in life science content via f2f or online.  They will also have many opportunities to apply what they have learned in lessons through various lab investigations and activities which can be fun and highly engaging.


 My goal is to create an in classroom learning environment or virtual/online to help your child:

 -Develop a strong science/social studies vocabulary

- Build a solid foundation of science/social studies concepts and understanding

- Make connections among science/social studies literacy and other investigative academic areas

- Utilize technology to learn more about science/social studies

- Apply mathematics to problem solving in science/social studies expressions

- Develop critical thinking skills and the ability to challenge assumptions, think creatively, and solve real-life problems using science techniques and social studies experiences

- Enjoy learning!


Because you are an integral part of your child’s education, I feel home to school communication is of vital importance. I hope to talk with each of you early this school year and continuing in the future.  I would also like to extend an invitation for you to contact me at any time.  I can be reached through the main office at school (706) 737-7350, Cell (706) 426-1822 or by email  at My office hours are from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday thru Friday. Text messages are also accepted.  If you would like to talk in person, I am always available to schedule appointments before school, after school, or during my planning period.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns for as I will do the same. We are a TEAM and I look forward to working together to make sure our son/daughter is successful.


I know that we will have a successful, exciting, and productive year in science/social studies and I look forward to being a part of the academic progress our child will make so lets make this is a TEAM effort.
