Ms. Dana Roberts

Welcome to 8th Grade Science at NEMS. I want to let you know that I welcome emails anytime from parents that wish to inquire about their student. Fridays are set aside as conference and work days. We are meeting with parents in 20 minute blocks. I have found it very beneficial to bring students in, for the last 5 minutes, to go over items discussed during the conference. This is my twentieth year teaching and my first year here at NEMS. I am pleased to meet my new face to face and new Ai students. I look forward to getting to know you and help you do your very best in this second semester of 8th grade science 

I earned my B.S. in Biology and Marine Science at Samford University in Homewood, Alabama. From there I worked at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab in research before working with K- college programs as a marine educator for the next five years. Science, and the ocean especially have been life long passions, that I truly enjoy sharing. The DCNR, Game and Fish Division asked me to move to north AL and train teachers for four years and then the ocean called me once again. I completed the East - West Program of diving research and then earned my M.Ed. through Northeastern University in Boston MA. After graduation, I worked at the Advent Episcopal School in Birmingham for ten years. I moved to Georgia, to be closer to family, and worked there for four years before finding a position at SAHS. I found Aiken County very welcoming and Now I have the pleasure of teaching and sharing science with your young adults.
