Welcome to Coach Coleman's 8th Grade Science class! I am really looking forward to working with you, and I am excited to help your child succeed in my class.

I have been a Charger for life, attending this very middle and high school. Blue and Orange run through my blood as do blue and red for the Rebels--Hotty Toddy! I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology and minor in Psychology. I am also the assistant volleyball coach and girls' head basketball coach here at Southaven. I love my Southaven community and I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, tailgating in the Grove, going to the beach, and playing/watching any kind of sport.

Science is all around us in everything we do, and I believe it is important for my students to develop an interest and enthusiasm in the sciences. I will engage their young minds with inquiry-based learning, while reinforcing important literacy and mathematics skills. Over the course of the year, we will focus on physical science, life science, and earth and space science. I will address multiple learning styles through various resources of the state-specific content. I will encourage your child throughout the year to be intrigued with the world in which we live.

Again, I am really looking forward to this year and the fun we will have. If you would like to contact me, the school's phone number is 662-280-0422. For more immediate attention, you can email me at and I will gladly answer any questions you may have.

We are also using Remind 101 as a free, safe, and simple messaging tool that helps me share important updates and reminders with you throughout the year. Students and parents can subscribe by text, email, or by using the Remind app. All personal information is private and I will never see your phone number, nor will you see mine. It's simply a "reminder text." Follow the instructions on the handout to join your class period.
