Welocome to Mrs. Mitchell's 7th Grade Science Class!
I will be teaching 7th grade science this year at Forbes! This will be my 5th year teaching middle school science, and my 1st year with Georgetown ISD. My family and I have been residents of Georgetown for 4 years and we absolutley love the community. My husband Chris and I have been married for 20 years and we have faternal twin 13 year old boys that are entering 8th grade at Benold Middle school this year (I can root for both schools, right?). Liam is involved with martial arts and band, and Garrett is involved with cross country, track and baseball.
I graduated from Texas A&M University (Whoop!) in 1996 with a degree in Wildlife Ecology. Spending almost 20 years in the animal care field working as a zookeeper, animal technologist, and eventually an animal manager, my animal experiece includes work with penguins, a variety of other birds, reptiles, rhesus monkeys, and chimpanzees. I have worked at Sea World of Texas, the Dallas Zoo, and the last 11 years of my career was spent at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Science Park in Bastrop, TX.
After becoming a mom, I decided to make a career change and obtained my alternative teacher certification in 2015. I participated in the TRC as a mentor in 2016-2017, and created 8th Grade science curriculum for TEKS Resource System in 2017-2018. I love teaching middle school, and I love teaching science! I am excited to help your child relate to the natural world around them.
