Welcome to 8th Grade Science with Mrs. Odom! I am a proud product of the Chandler School District and feel so blessed to be teaching here at Santan. Not only do I LOVE teaching my 8th grade students Science, but I co-sponsor the Santan Service Club, as community service is something very dear to my heart, and sponsor the SJHS Dance Team. I am addicted to coffee, love my Golden Retriever puppy (Louie), enjoy all AZ sports, and I promise you my students are all taller than me.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education - General Sciences (GO LUMBERJACKS!). I have had the opportunity to teach at multiple grade levels, but especially enjoy working with junior high students. I have been fortunate enough to call SJHS my “home” since 2012. I love the uniqueness each school year brings and cherish the forever memories I build in my classroom with my 8th graders!

My Educational Philosophy

I wish to provide a classroom environment where students feel comfortable and respected in sharing information, asking questions, and giving presentations. With high school just around the corner, I feel it is very important that students develop study skills and responsibility necessary to make them successful as they progress through their secondary school years. I hope to instill a love for learning in my students, that encourages and builds each of their unique strengths. I am passionate in sharing my knowledge and love for Science with my students!
