It is that time of year again to get ready for another great school year. Hello my name is Mrs. Xiong. I have been teaching in Auburndale since 2003 and I am very excited to get to know you and your child. I know the transition to high school can be big and I am committed to working with him or her and you to ensure his or her success.
The class will incorporate a combination of hands-on based learning activities and laboratory along with an introduction to note taking. This is an invaluable skill for your child in preparation for high school and further academic success. I will help your child learn what it takes to succeed.
The curriculum is developed upon the next generation science standards for science. The middle school science department has gone to an integrated curriculum so students will experience each of the four categories of science each year, and will build off of topics from the previous year.I have high expectations of my students. I set the bar high to give my students every advantage for future academic success. I will support my students and help them reach those expectations.
I encourage students to email with questions throughout the day, and I am available at 7:30am, and 3:15-3:30pm for additional help.
It is my professional goal to help your child make the connections from what we learn in the classroom to their personal everyday lives. The purpose of science is to help us understand the world around us and increase our problem solving ability. I am committed to improving your child’s self-confidence in the classroom. I encourage parental interest in their child’s learning. The more we work together as a team, the more successful your child will be. Should you have questions or concerns please contact me at 652-2115 ext. 2204 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
