My name is Ann Yuhas, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to The Madeleine Science Lab — a place where all students are invited to explore the wonders of science, the natural world and the magnificence of God’s creations. The Madeleine Science Lab emphasizes hands-on activities and experiments to help students master the important scientific concepts they need to be successful.
We also emphasize fun! All students, kindergarteners through eighth graders, are welcome to come to the lab and play with the science toys. I believe the best science is learned by doing things. Good science, like life, is active, messy, absolutely fascinating, and just a little bit chaotic. Students can expect to get their hands dirty in The Madeleine Science Lab. They will design their own experiments, build things, mix chemicals, observe animals and grow plants as a part of their science experience.
I teach middle school science (grades 6 – 8) and also sections of seventh and eighth grade math. I am also the science resource for the K – 5 teachers, helping them with labs and activities. Previously, I taught middle school science at St. John the Baptist Catholic School in Milwaukie, and middle school science and math at Valley Catholic. In my spare time I enjoy reading mystery novels, running, and quilting.
