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. My planning period is from 2:20 until 3:00 after that I have dismissal duties. We can set up a phone confernece via email any day during that time. If you want to meet in person, 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 twenty first year teaching and my second year here at NEMS. I look forward to getting to know my new students and help you do your very best in this year.
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. This summer I will be learning more about the coastal habitats along North Carolina's coast and hope to bring back plenty of new things to share!
