Mr. Cypher-Tierney's Bio

Mr. Cypher-Tierney’s Science Class!
 

Students and Parents, 

State testing is here!!! Students in grade 7 will take ELA and math. Students in grade 8 will take ELA, math and science. Science and math starts April 25 for the Middle School. 

I WANT TO SEE MY STUDENTS WORK HARD TO GET AMAZING TEST SCORES!!

Hello! My name is Mr. Cypher-Tierney. Science is my favorite subject to learn and teach! I have always been curious about the world around me. It is my mission to help students become life-long learners of science. Learning about science at a young age will help students be successful in an increasingly scientific and technologic world.

Some things about me: I love the outdoors, going on hikes, exploring new places, running, cooking, and hanging out with friends and family!

In science, we use Study Island. To reach me please email me at: [email protected]
