8th Grade Physical Science
Welcome to Mrs. Martinez's Science Class.
Welcome to 8th Grade Physical Science! I am excited to have a Scholar like you in my classroom. It is a pleasure that I welcome your child to my class. We can all look forward to a very exciting and rewarding school year.
One of my objectives as a science teacher is to have your child become a scholarly explorer of science. As an educator, I believe that research skills, technology proficiency, curiosity, scientific thought and methods are tools that will engage your child in life long learning.
The central theme of South Gate Middle School as well as my classroom is that “We are all in this together.” Every lab we do, every discussion we have, every assignment we complete, involves EVERYONE. This philosophy will help create a classroom culture where all of you can be a successful learner.
Our class goal for this school year is for EVERY Scholar to achieve a proficiency score of 80 and above.
