Welcome students to the 2018-1019 school year and to the exciting new science curriculum on AMPLIFY.  I am Ms. Brown 7th and 8th grade science teacher.  I am located in Room 14.  My phone extension is 3944 at Adams  310-798-8636.  My email address is cbrown@rbusd.org.  I look forward to getting to know all the students and helping them learn science skills, be more confident thinkers with great science and engineering skills that they can carry to the next grade level.
 
My class consists of computer work, lab work, and classwork using an interactive notebook to keep students organized throughout the year.  Assessments are in the form of tests, quizzes, labs, notebooks and workbooks, projects, and presentations.
