Welcome to 6th Grade Science! Hi, my name is Kathy McGrath. I am a sixth grade science teacher at Woodland Middle School. This is my 11th year teaching at WMS and my 10th year teaching science, but I have taught for the district for 18+ years, and have spent all of those years at the middle school level. I am extremely passionate about science and feel so lucky to get to teach something I absolutely love!
In my free time I love doing things in the beautiful outdoors: hiking, biking, kayaking, gardening, etc. I am also a bit of a music nerd and love listening to and dancing to great music. I also love reading, watching a good movie and sharing a lot of laughs with my friends and family (and students)!
I realize that getting to know a new school and new teachers can be quite stressful at first, and my goal is to help make it go as smoothly as possible. I have no doubt that we will have a few bumps along the way and I believe giving each other grace when we make mistakes, as we are learning and growing is very important. My hope is that by the end of the year, your child develops a love of learning about science!
