8th grade Science
Ms. Getnet holds a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Philosophy from Gonzaga University. Her own experience in science includes helping lead biology and chemistry labs at the college level, as well as full time research in an organic chemistry lab. However, when she was in the 8th grade, she did not consider herself a “science person” at all, because she says she struggled so much in her STEM classes. When she looks back, she remembers how important it was to have teachers and family members who believed in her, because it was their investment that made it possible for her to succeed. This year, Ms. Getnet looks forward to seeing her students succeed and working alongside students and families to achieve our 8th grade science goals!
