Ms. Knapp

Welcome to 6th Grade Service Science Class!

My name is Ms. Joan Knapp and I am glad you have found my site!  My goal this year is to engage your child in the world of science by helping them apply scientific methods to everyday situations.  You will find that Math and Language Arts standards will be woven into my daily lessons.  My hope is to support these subject areas creating deeper connections.
I have been teaching in Hudson for over 30 years.  It has been my privilege to have worked in many diverse settings.  I started my career in special education at McDowell School and then taught 5th-grade math and science at East Woods Elementary.  And now I have landed at the beautiful Hudson Middle School.  My B.S. in Education was received at The University of Akron, my M.A. in Curriculum and Instruction was completed at Ashland University, and from 1997 to 2007 I received National Board Certification.  My education continues outside the classroom because of my love of learning. 


I also treasure my role as a mother to three beautiful children.   The lessons they have taught me compliment the work that I have done in the field of education.  We all live in Kent and love our time together.

Let’s make it a great year of discovery together!
