Welcome to the 8th Grade Science Website!

Welcome to Ms. Hyder's website for the 8th grade scholars at MMA! This website will contain information about our classroom, subjects and topics that will be discussed throughout the school year, links to assignments, and other insightful things. 
Our classroom will strive to succeed and grow in all that we do. I believe the best way for the family to work is in a team setting. We will encourage each other, take risks, and learn from our mistakes. My goal is for students to not only understand the lesson but enjoy it while being engaged. Culturally, I intend to use real life examples in our lessons by learning about what is happening in other parts of the world. I am also a big believer in differentiated learning. Therefore, we will do hands on learning, use technology, create songs, and much more in order to meet the needs of every student.  Parents- I love having you be a part of the team as well so please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I will try my best to keep you informed as much as a I can as well.
About Me
I was born and raised in Indiana (Go Hoosiers!). My family is a huge part of who I am and I cherish them deeply. I received my bachelor of science degree from Indiana University. I am a part of Teach for America and chose Eastern North Carolina to make a change in my students' lives by pursing equity. Overall, I am very excited to be a part of the MMA family and am ready for a successful school year. Go trailblazers!
