8th Grade Science

Welcome to 8th grade science!  My name is Mrs. Chapman and I am excited to be your science teacher this year.  I have a B.S. in Environmental Science with a double minor in Biology and Chemistry from Stephen F. Austin State University.  I taught for one year at BHS ('03-'04) and as a substitute teacher for many years at all the BISD campuses.  I began teaching 7th grade science in January 2020 and taught through the 2020-2021 school year.  This is my first year teaching 8th grade science.  I am married and we have two children:  a daughter and a son.  We have three dogs and three cats and they love to roam all around our property.  I enjoy gardening, working in my yard and spending time with my family.  I look forward to getting to know all of my students throughout the year.  Never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.  Let's make it a great year!!
