Welcome to Mr. Bryant’s Science Classes.
This year I will be teaching 7th Grade Advanced Science, 8th Grade Earth Science, and IPC for advanced 8th Grade Science.
Background info on me:
I am a retired army veteran of 20 years in the Army Infantry. I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Science where I majored in biology and minored in Earth science. This is my seventh year here at Gatesville Junior High School. I have a son that graduated from Gatesville High School in 2012, a daughter that graduated from Gatesville High School in 2016, and another daughter that is in fourth grade, all of which are very dear to me, just as I know parents, your children are dear to you.
My goal is to inspire and encourage students to strive to be the best they can be. I hope to do this by engaging them in activities that engross them in learning, exploration, and experimentation. We will do classroom activities which include individual and group work, labs, computer labs, outside exploration, and some good old-fashioned hard work and studying. Hopefully, you will all find it as interesting and as fascinating as I do.
This year will be a challenge for all of us as we deal with COVID-19 and try to make this as safe and learner-friendly as possible. There may be changes along the way and we will do the best we can to adapt. With that being said, we will have a much heavier emphasis on digital use in and out of the classroom with Google Classroom being a big part of it.
Please see my other pages on this website for more specifics about the classes that specifically pertain to you.
