    Welcome to 8th grade Physical Science!  I am Karen Marx new to Beverly Manor Middle this year, yet a twenty-five year veteran of education.  I live in Waynesboro with my husband Barry and two sons Ryan and Colin.  My previous teaching position was with Staunton City Schools for ten years teaching students ranging from 7 to 12 years old.  My extended family still resides in Southern New Jersey where I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Science for 14 years.  The topics  included Life, Earth, and Physical Science.  We relocated to Virginia in 2008, and I taught in a few areas before choosing to stay in the Shenandoah Valley.  I am Virginia Certified and endorsed in PreK through sixth grade and Middle School Science.  My son Ryan attends Virginia Tech for Mechanical Engineering, and he is currently in Columbus, Indiana on a Co-op with Cummins Diesel Engine Company in the Fuel Systems Department.  The youngest in our home has his first year of college starting August 30th at Old Dominion University at the Perry Honors College in Mechanical Engineering.  My husband works for Tenneco or now DRiV systems in Harrisonburg where he is the lead technician for creating converters in automobile engines.  I am so excited to be back teaching Middle School Science, my favorite subject!!  Please let me know if you have any questions, need me to know any trips you are taking, work your student will be missing, or any other information you need.
