Welcome to Miss P's STAR Academy Science and STEM classroom!

Hi all! Welcome to your 6th and 7th grade STAR Academy science, and 8th grade STEM classroom.
A little about me:
I have been teaching since 2001 in Illinois and Tennessee.  I have been in Fayette County Schools since 2013 teaching at East Junior High (8th grade science), Oakland Elementary (STEM and computers) and West Junior High (academy science/social studies/STEM and robotics).
As you look through my website please click on the class you are in to see more info and links.  The website will be updated weekly as well as Clever and Canvas with assignments and announcements.

I look forward to a great year with your student. Should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or phone. My planning time is during 1st and 3rd  period. I will be more than happy to discuss your student’s progress during this time.


Test Correction Policy

Test grades below 70 may be corrected and brought up to a 70 within the week that the graded test was passed back. To receive full credit, the student must copy the question and the correct answer for each missed question on a separate sheet of paper and turn in with original test.
