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 February 19th

Posted on Feb 20, 2019

While we are close to wrapping up Trimester 2, we have a lot of fun activities that we are completing. 

In 7th Grade we are continuing to learn about natural versus artificial selection. We will be learning about dog breeding this week, next week we will be learning about genetically modified crops/food. We will wrap up the trimester reviewing and taking our final test on Friday March 1st. 

In 8th Grade we are wrapping up our projects on our view of Climate Change. Our students dove into the Science and Opinions that support both sides of the debate. Thursday and Friday of this week the students will be working on the Study Guide and other review activities for the final next week Wednesday, February 27th. 

You can find the two study guides on your student's classroom page, as well as in the links below. If you would like a paper copy sent home, please email me at
