Welcome 6th Graders and Parents to Anahuac Middle School!
This is my second year at AMS and I am loving every minute of it. I have the opportunity to teach a core class that opens everyone's mind up to Science. I am excited to be teaching and I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
"The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as
to discover new ways of thinking about them."
