WELCOME!! You are about to embark on a journey that will take you to places beyond your wildest imaginations. As we learn about the Earth we will go back in time to uncover and identify processes that led to the development and formation of some of the Earth’s most incredible features. What forces produce mountains? Why is our daily weather so variable? Is the climate really changing? How old is the Earth and how is it related to other planets of the solar system? Is Long Island prepared to withstand a major hurricane? Will New York ever experience a large earthquake? The understanding of our planet is critical to our social well-being and indeed, vital to our survival.
As a Science teacher, I am afforded the opportunity and pleasure to guide you in discovering the answers to these and many other questions relative to the Earth the Ocean and the physical world around us. My Science curriculum is designed to encourage you to investigate the world around you through first hand experiences and to help you gain a new understanding of this world and the processes of change. Emphasis will be based on observation, analysis, and interpretation.
