Welcome to 7th grade science! My name is Ms. Penxa (PENK - SA).  I grew up in Bucks County PA where I attended Archbishop Wood High School.  I completed my undergraduate work at Temple University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education.  I hold certifications in Middle Grades Science and Language Arts.  I view myself as a life-long learner and will encourage you to do the same both inside of our classroom as well as out. In my classroom you are scientists.  Our class puts an emphasis on thinking like a scientist as well as being scientifically literate through the concepts and investigations we explore together.  Some of my science teacher idols are Bill Nye, Ms. Frizzle, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson.  I look forward to guiding you on the start of your scientific career in this most exciting subject!
 
Sincerely,
 
Ms. Penxa
