Ms. Heather Barnes - 7th Grade (Science)
Hello from Jacobsen Middle School. I am glad to be part of this staff and ready to help students learn about the natural world and prepare for high school. Jacobsen serves as a bridge to the next step in life. Our job is to teach and prepare young adults for the world of work, trade school, military or whatever is next.
My specific role at JMS is to facilitate students in fulfilling science requirements and learning tools such as note taking, graphing and analyzing data. In the past I have taught science and computer applications at the junior high level, here in Tehachapi and in Orange County. I have also worked at MOnroe Continuation High School
Every day please bring: a can-do attitude, a large dose of respect, your science folder and any supplies you may need to complete work in class.
