Welcome to Ms. Ebbers' Science Classes!

Hi, I'm Ms. Rachel Ebbers, science teacher for grades 7, 8, & 9. I'm looking forward to another great year teaching science at Cathedral High School and to further interact with the New Ulm Area Catholic School community.  There were many successes in the CHS science department last year.  Several students took the opportunity to compete at the Regional Science & Engineering Fair and advanced to the State Science & Engineering Fair held in Minneapolis.  I was so proud of each one for their hard work during the competition and I hope to see similar achievements this year! :) 

I continue to be fascinated with the Earth Sciences and the breakthrough discoveries made in the fields of Astronomy, Geology, Meteorology and Oceanography.
  I'm always amazed by the interactions and relationships between these sciences. I'm excited to educate students about the world we live in and to help entice their curiosity to become individuals that can critically think about their surroundings and gain knowledge from their experiences.

It is my intention to provide my students with a quality education where they can achieve success and reach their fullest academic potential in my classroom.  I will expect a high standard of excellence from my students.  I will encourage them to work hard and stay disciplined when it comes to their studies and understanding the content material being taught.  

I encompass a wide range of assessments to investigate the students' knowledge of the science concepts they have learned.  Some of these forms of assessments include tests, quizzes, independent homework, in-class experiments/labs, projects, web-activities, presentations, participation in group discussions, research and even review games.  I have high expectations for your child and believe that each one is capable of having an outstanding school year!
