Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mrs. Hopkins and this is my 11th year teaching science to students at the secondary level. During the 2016-2017 school year, I will be teaching middle school 6th grade & 7th grade Integrated science (life, physical, & earth science). I currently hold a Professional Education Certificate to instruct Integrated Science, Biology, and Health to students at the secondary level in Michigan. Additionally, I hold a Masters in Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Chapman University and I am working towards a second Masters degree in Science Education from Lawrence Tech. I absolutely love teaching students about science, the natural world around them. Furthermore, I am excited to be apart of the CC-C school district and influence students to be responsible members of society.
Some other information about myself is that I am originally from a rural town near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. After high school, I received a full academic-athletic scholarship to Central Michigan University where I majored in Biology and gained valuable experience as a Division-I field hockey athlete. Next, my husband and I relocated to the Mojave Desert in Southern California to start our teaching careers after graduating from CMU. There I taught science and health for seven years and became Teacher of the Year in 2010-2011. Three years ago, we relocated back to Michigan to be near extended family. I have a daughter, Zoey, who is 4 years old and keeps us on our toes!
