Ms. Vogel

Welcome, let me introduce myself...

Welcome!  I have been teaching at Palms Middle School for more than 15 years, and I find it a wonderful, inspiring place.  I have been offered jobs at other schools, but I have no desire to leave Palms because I don't think I could find a better staff or better students.  I graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a double major in Life Sciences and Agriculture and Communications.  I worked at Hubbs Sea World Research Institute for 6 years in their aquaculture program before moving to Los Angeles.  I come from a line of Engineers and Nurses and I love the sciences. 

I hope that your child finds this science class interesting and inspiring.  If you have any questions about the class please email me, I check my email daily during the work week and I will respond as quickly as possible.

General News and Information for All Classes

All students receive a homework stamp sheet at the beginning of each week.  Please check it often and sign it before it is collected on Fridays (or the last day of the week).  Signatures get EXTRA CREDIT!

I usually send out a class progress report before the school sends out the official progress report.  Keep an eye out for these about every 5 weeks, it will show all assignments and missing work.


Please make sure your child has all supplies in class by Monday, August 18th (see list on this page)
