Ms. Margo McDowell Gore

The formal report due date has changed to January 27th!

This week we will finish the Cells unit and take the Second Quarter Benchmark test.  The Benchmark will include the Physical and Chemical properties standards that we learned before winter break.  Please review these notes before Thursday.

I am excited to spend the 2019-2020 school year with the wonderful students, parents and faculty at Kennedy Middle School.   I teach seventh grade Science, Advanced Science and Comprehensive Health.  I also serve as the science department chairperson, science fair coordinator and mentor/advisor to the Kennedy Future City and Engineering Club.  My journey as an educator in Aiken County Public Schools spans over 22 years at the middle and elementary levels. I am a National Board Certified science teacher (Early Adolescence) with a Bachelor’s degree in Education from the University of South Carolina Aiken; a Master’s degree in Divergent Learning from Columbia College; and a Master’s degree in Educational Administration from the University of South Carolina.  I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership and Policies at the University of South Carolina.

My ultimate goal for this school year is to ensure that my students develop an intrinsic love for science as they grow academically, socially and internally. 

TUTORING:  Please contact me if you need to stay after school for tutoring.  I am available most Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-4:30.

I will post daily homework, upcoming assessment dates and events on REMIND as well as on this webpage.  To join, download text the number 81010 and enter the class code @goresci7
