Wow! Twenty-seven years at Poulsbo Middle School. I have been
teaching at Poulsbo Middle School since 1989. In fact, I'm just starting

Science. Since we will be learning about catastrophic events and what
causes them, you can get a head start by checking the news for things
going on around the world, like the big earthquakes, or large storm
systems forming in tropical waters. Why are they happening where they
are? We'll find out.
