Welcome to Ms. McConnell's Webpage!
Hi there! I teach 7th grade science at Hill Country Middle School! I am very excited for a great year ahead exploring the scientific world! I moved to Austin this summer from Frisco, Texas, where I taught high school Pre-AP Biology and Environmental Science for three years. I am so looking forward to work with the middle school students this year as I love their energy and enthusiasm!
I have a true love for science, and am eager to peak my student's scientific curiosity. I received my B.S. in Science at Pepperdine University, and my Masters in Education from Texas Woman's University. I fill my free time traveling as I've been to 25 countries, I love staying active and spending time in the nature and doing sports. Additionally, I have the most adorable niece, with another niece along the way!
Seventh grade science is interdisciplinary as well, covering physical, earth and life science, with much of the focus on organisms and the environment. We will use several resources throughout the school year including the state adopted textbooks, supplementary handouts, notes, labs, and online resources. I look forward to our year!
