Welcome to 7th Grade Science!

Hello! My name is Ms. James and I am so excited to be teaching 7th grade Science here at Tison Middle School this year! I am looking forward to getting to know you and share my passion for science with each of you.
Little bit about me:
This will be my 10th year teaching middle school.  I have had other positions within education before I became a teacher, giving me a total of 19 years working with middle school and high school students. I graduated from the University of North Texas in Denton (Go Eagles!!) with a Bachelors in Science in Interdisciplinary Studies.
I love teaching science and can not wait to share that love of science with each of you. 
In Life Science this year we will be setting the foundations for your 8th and 9th grade science classes. Science is all around us and I am hear to help you research and develop a deeper understanding of how Biologist and other environmental scientist work. In science you should always expect the unexpected. 
I am excited about working with each of you this year. This is going to be a great year and I am here to help you in anyway I can. 
If you have any questions for me please email me at 


Meeting Ms. James

Here is a little video so that you can meet me. I am not the best video taker and probably could use a class or two to get better at it. Look forward to seeing you all next Thursday, August 20th.
