My name is Daisy Hougan.  This is my seventeenth year teaching but  first year at Lake Ridge Middle School and I'm excited to be teaching science.  I have a background in marine biology and oceanography before becoming a teacher and am looking forward to sharing my interest in science with my students.
We have two final units to work on.  We are currently working on our Weather/Atmosphere unit.  Students just finished studying the layers of the atmosphere and characteristics of them.  Next, we'll be studying air pollution.  Our final unit of the year will be the Solar System.
Under the files and documents tab of the web page, you'll find the science pacing guide and the unit guides for Atmosphere/Weather and the Solar System which will provide more detailed information about course objectives.
