Mrs. Wasmoen - Life Science

Hi! Welcome to a new school year! Science this year will be amazing! Lots of experiements, readings, video clips, small group discussions make class informative and interesting.  

Just a bit about me. I have been teaching for 34 years here in Minneapolis. I have always taught middle school age kids - 5th through 8th grade.  Having taught all the subjects, science is my favorite! I love observing students make connections between material in class and the real world. 

Home work is given every Monday and is due on Thursday.

I stay after school on Tuesdays to help students with work.

Let me know if you need anything, I am here to help you be successful!
