Teressa Strizich8th Grade Science
I am a proud mother of two wonderful girls, Cherish 13 years old and Faith 5 years old. I moved to Texas in February of 2009 from Arkansas. I graduated in 2007 from the University of Arkansas with my Masters of Arts in Teaching. I AM a Razorback fan, Go Hogs Go!!! This is my sixth year of teaching Science at Hallsville Junior High. I try to make Science as enjoyable as I can through song, hands-on labs, exploration, and food. We focus a lot on the ability to use parts of your brain to learn new things that you might not use everyday. Students should experience Science hands-on instead of reading about it out of a book. Our 8th grade team believes that anyone can love Science as long as they are willing to try. We look forward to seeing you in our new classrooms in August.
