    Hello parents, guardians, and students! My name is Maria McDonel. This is my 18th year in education and I am excited to be a Wildcat!  I will be teaching 6th grade science at Calallen Middle School. I LOVE science, I LOVE kids, and I LOVE school! I am very passionate about what I do and I try to incorporate all of these things into my everyday lessons. I want to get kids as excited about science as I am. I also work very hard to give students the skills they need to be successful in all classes in general. This year I will be focusing on testing strategies, note taking skills, and emphasizing the importance of organizational skills. I look forward to working with each and every one of you this year. Please do not hesitate to ask me anything at all about my class or the Middle School in general.
