Science (7th)

This is the start of my fifth year at Seven Hills!  I am married and have a 17 month old daughter.  I grew up in Chicago, IL and went to school at a public academy.  I am the first person in my family’s history to graduate from college. I went to college in Stevens Point, WI and La Crosse, WI.  I love science but especially love botany, renewable and sustainable energy, and environmental science and ecology. My interests include knitting, nature hikes, going to see concerts, thrift shopping, and spending time with my family.  




Here is our classroom webpage: Seven Hills Science

In seventh grade, we learn about the science of life.  The instruction focuses on the scientific study of living organisms as well as the nature of science.  This class is a safe space for exploration and curiosity.  All curricular activities are aligned to the MN Science Standards and are delivered in a classical method involving teacher/student coaching, Socratic seminars, hands-on explorations, and extensive handwriting.  Highlights include two dissections and an overnight ecology and teambuilding field trip at Baker Near Wilderness.

Students may access hard copies of assignments by contacting Ms. Hoffman during study hall.

Printed copies of notes are available upon request.
