New Science Curriculum: (AOD Next Generation Science Standards,2017).The universe is a place subject to fundamental scientific principles. An understanding of these principles will better prepare an individual to cope with a world in which rapid technological developments are taking place. As knowledge rapidly expands, it is most important for students to learn to make rational and moral decisions based upon scientific principles and their Catholic values. The skills and knowledge afforded students to make these types of decisions should reflect an appropriate level of intellectual and emotional growth. This curriculum is designed to stimulate curiosity and to develop morally responsible,scientifically literate citizens. This curriculum stresses the process of science as a way of learning and further emphasizes that scientific knowledge is always subject to change based on additional knowledge.

 

 A little about me.... I have been teaching in the Port Huron area for more than 15 years - both in public and private environments. My husband of 31 years, Tom, and I have 4 children: Christopher, Steven, Jeffrey and Emily. We lived in Holland, MI for 13 years, moving back to Port Huron in 1999. We became members of St. Marys at that time, and all of our children received their Sacraments at this parish. We are currently members of Holy Trinity Parish, and are becoming active in an outreach program to support engaged and married couples in our community. We have one dog, a Beagle named Daisy. We enjoy spending time bike riding, four-wheeling, fishing, boating (pontoon and kayak), antiquing, and attending Notre Dame football games! I am looking forward to becoming an intricate part of the St. Mary/McCormick Academy education community!
