SEVENTH GRADE SCIENCE
Dear students and parents,
For those of you that are new to ICS, my name is Stacy Jones and this is my fourteenth year teaching 6th, 7th and 8th grade science at ICS. I live in Pittstown with my husband, two daughters and cat. I have always enjoyed science and I am looking forward to sharing the marvels of science with you this year.
I have been involved in science in one form or another for over thirty years. I graduated from Virginia Tech with a BS degree in Biology with a Microbiology option. I then received an MS degree in Microbiology and Immunology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I came back home to New Jersey after graduating from UNC and worked for a biotech company doing research and product development for nine years. While there, I worked on the early detection of colorectal cancer.
I took a hiatus from working outside of the home when I had my two daughters, Lauren and Becky. They are both alumni of ICS. Lauren graduated from Cornell University and is currently at Mount Holyoke College pursuing her Masters in the Art of Teaching. Her dream is to be a high school English teacher. Becky is a senior at Lehigh University majoring in Biology. She hopes to become a veterinarian.
When I started back to work, I decided to use my science background to teach children. I returned to school and obtained my teaching certificates in Elementary Education and Biology and then I started working at ICS.
I look forward to seeing you all in the fall. I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing summer. I will see you in September.
The assignments for the week will be posted on PowerSchool. Please keep in mind that the assignments that I post are based on my plans for the week. Plans are subject to change, and therefore the dates that assignments are due may change. Your child’s assignment book should be the most accurate location for assignments and due dates. The assignments are listed ahead of time on PowerSchool so that you can get an idea of what we are doing.
