Hello and welcome to 6th Grade Science! My name is Mrs. Durband, and I am very excited to be your 6th grade science teacher this year. This is my third year at Round Lake Middle School. I earned my Professional Educators License at Southern Illinois University. My goal is to provide each student with a positive learning experience and to create a desire in each student to look at the world around them through the scientific lens of inquiry. The art of science (scientific inquiry) is the ability to observe the world around us using our foundation of knowledge and limitless curiosity. It is also the ability to formulate an educated answer to the ever important question; “How do you know?” I look forward to taking this journey together as you prepare for high school, college, and beyond.
