Mrs. Karen Nagele

Welcome to my science class! This is my 15+ year of teaching and my 11th year at Hurst Middle School. I am looking forward to teaching your student this year. 

Google classroom is a vital part of our class. We will access Google Classroom with our district provided Chromebooks. It is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submissions to be to posted and collected digitally.

To access Google Classroom, please use the following link and have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the “Google Classroom” link on the left side of the menu. 

A weekly agenda will guide you and your student to the work for that week.  Please click on the tab at the top of the Google classroom called "classwork".  Thank you for being an vital part of your student's learning team!

My partner and I have made a LEAP review for your student.  They can access the entire resource in their Google classroom.  The link provided is a video guide and outline of this year's work.
