Welcome! My name is Mrs. Potts and I have been teaching science for 14 years. I love teaching 8th graders; the 8th grade science content is so fascinating and engaging!

I didn't start my career teaching, however. I received my B.S. in biochemistry and cellular and molecular biology (that's a mouthful, huh?) from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and began working as a laboratory technician in several biomedical research labs at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. I got to do a lot of cool stuff- I even cloned transgenic mice!

However, the research life was not for me, as I longed to share my passion for my subject with others, and I soon found my calling in teaching science. In the time since, I earned my M.Ed. from Middle Tennessee State University. I love helping kids develop scientific literacy and the critical thinking skills that get them to know the joy of a lifetime of curiosity and learning about their world.

You will need the following materials for my class:

  • A 2" three-ring binder (you will need this for all classes) with 6 dividers (0ne for each class, including science)
  • Pencil Pouch with highlighters and pencils

I expect the following in my class:

  1. Bring your binder with notes and pencil to class EVERY DAY.  
  2. Begin your classwork promptly.
  3. Stay in your assigned space.
  4. "SLANT" - and always wait your turn to speak.
  5. Do your BEST, every day!
