As we begin the 2019-2020 school year, please let me welcome you to Breckinridge Middle School.  It is a school rich in diversity and strong in academic and sports programs.

We begin the second half of the first quarter studying matter: composition,states, phase changes. This will be followed by mixtures and solutions which will lead us into acids and bases.  Several activities are planned in which students will work individually, with partners, and in teams. The skills learned concerning lab safety and classroom procedures at the beginning of the course will allow students to engage and interact in an organized and methodical way around equipment with success.

My expectations of students are the same as always, 100% participation and cooperation, daily with an accuracy rate of 85%.

I encourage my students to read, read, read, all they can about the world around them. Don't just Google information, students are encouraged to go out and experience the science in the world in which they live.


Should you need to reach me, please send a note with your student, email me at, or by calling 853-2251 .
