Welcome Parents and Students,
    It is an awesome pleasure to be in your company for this 2019-2020 school year. I am the Physical Science teacher at Franklin Jr. High School (5 years).
    As you may already know that Louisiana has recently updated their Student Science Standards.
    These standards will call your child to;
    1.) Apply content knowledge to real world phenomena and to design solutions. (More Hands-On Engineering Practices)
    2.) Demonstrate the practices of scientists and engineers. ( Create knowledge in the working world)
    3.)Connect scientific learning to all disciplines of science. (Cross-connect sciences)
    4.)Express ideas grounded in scientific evidence. (Create thoughts to your engineering practice solutions)
    This will be a fun and exciting school year for me as a teacher, and hopefully as well for the students. 
    " Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn"~ Benjamin Franklin
