Welcome to Journey for 2017-18

My name is Rebecca Drury, and I usually go by Becca. I am starting my 15th year as a public middle school teacher, with a focus on math, science, and engineering. I can hardly believe am in my 10th year at Cascade K-8 Community School. I was a geologist and a web developer before I became a teacher.

I am teaching Algebra 1, 8th-grade math, 8th-grade science, 8th-grade Designmaker, 7th-grade science,  and 7th-grade Designmaker. I am the primary instructor for our STEAM Program.

Shereen Allen, Keisha Harvey, and I share all of the Journey students. Shereen teaches 6th-grade math and 7th and 8th-grade humanities (ELA and Social Studies). Keisha Harvey teaches 7th-grade math, 7th-grade compression math, and all the other subjects with 6th graders.  Fergus Temporada is the Arts and Technology teacher, Tiffany Smith is the PE teacher, Bob Phillips is the 6th Grade Band Teacher, and Vicky Ault is the 6th-grade orchestra teacher.

Our focus in science this year is Earth and space science. In designmaker, we are focusing on inventions and innovations.
