Hello! My name is Mr. McLaughlin, and I will be teaching 8th grade Physical Science here at Lake Ridge Middle! This is my first year teaching, as I just graduated from Virginia Tech with my Master's Degree in Science Education.

We will learn about various topics ranging from matter and motion to concepts such as the periodic table. We will be taking the 8th grade science SOL, but have no fear! We will be more than ready and will have an exciting year together. If you have any questions at all, please contact me at my email: mclaugke@pwcs.edu
