Mrs. Carolyn McCurdy
Welcome to my page.
I love learning of all kinds, but I am fascinated by how the world and life systems work and our role in them. I hope to kindle some of that fascination in my students.
I earned a Bachelors of Science at Central Missouri State University, with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Biology. It probably should have been the other way around, but I had an awesome Chemistry teacher in high school, and coming off that great year I thought I wanted to focus on Chemistry. I enjoyed Biology more in college, but I come from stubborn stock, and did not want change my major. I also have my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Augusta University.
I teach AP Environmental Science & Earth Science. Please check out my website for your specific class. There is a section for lesson plans. Plans are posted by the week ending date. They are what I plan to do as of Sunday, but sometimes weeks do not go as intended. Therefore, the plans are subject to change. Under the helpful files header you can find such things as the syllabus, parent letter, grade book abbreviations, and things that are not unit specific. For course specific files like PowerPoints, study guides, etc please see student's Schoology account. It is an online classroom that will be used for the course.
I encourage parent contact. The best way to contact me is by email, which is firstname.lastname@example.org. Reaching a teacher at school can be hard since we are in the classroom. On a regular bell schedule my planning periods are 4th (11:46-12:36) and 7th (2:40-3:30)
