  • Welcome to Team 8B Physical Science and Enrichment Science!! 

    (Period 1= Enrichment Science/ and Periods 4,6,& 7 = Physical Science Classes)

    My name is Mr. Mocera and I will be your 8th grade science teacher for this 2014-2015 school year.  My hope and vision is to guide you through new and exciting learning experiences for science and prepare you for your transition to high school.

     You will find I am a very supportive, fair, and driven teacher that sets high standards for his students.  During the year you will be apart of cooperative learning groups as well as independent activities which will foster learning through discovery, experimentation, research, and science literacy. 

     Be prepared to work hard, come to class prepared/ready to learn, set/reach high academic goals, ask questions, build new friendships, and enjoy the learning process!!  My door is always open and those who seek help and work beyond expectations, will always find and achieve great success.
