Ms. Amanda McAndrews-Junior High Science

Hi! I'm Amanda McAndrews, the new Junior High Science teacher at St. John Fisher. In 2015, I graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Elementary Education with an Endorsement in Science. Since then, I have taught 4 years in the classroom, had the opportunity of working with the Museum of Science and Industry, and traveled across the United States getting real world experiences to use in the classroom. I not only love teaching Science, but I also love sports, traveling, playing with my dogs, and spending time with my family. I am anxious for the year ahead with such an enthusiastic, compassionate, and proud community here at St. John Fisher. 

Week of April 8th

Posted on Apr 08, 2019

We have had some busy weeks here at Fisher. We are working hard in Science, right up to our Spring Break!

In 7th Grade Science, we have learned about frogs, pigs, food Oh my! This week we will be learning all about the chicken. Starting with the anatomy of a chicken, down to the very intricate parts of a chicken wing. On Tuesday/Wednesday the students will be dissecting a raw chicken wing (if they so choose). They will then take a Quiz on the chicken anatomy and dissection on Friday April 12th . 

I've asked for a donation of $3 to cover the cost of the dissecting materials and specimen. 

In 8th Grade Science, we will be wrapping up our unit of Chemical Reactions with a Quiz on Thursday April 11th! On Wednesday, Science will be partnering up with Spanish class to learn how to make tortilla's from scratch. We will infuse culture into our chemical reactions, how fun!

If your family is leaving early on vacation starting Thursday or Friday. Please contact me, or have your student come in early to complete their quizzes.
