Welcome to Science class! My name is Mrs. Leitz and I teach a variety of science classes here at Westerly High School, including Physical Science Honors, Forensic Science, Ethics in Science and Virtual Forensic Science. I have a Bachelors Degree in Biology (Minor in Philosophy) from Siena College and a Masters Degree in Science Education from the University of Rhode Island. Since completing my Masters I have taken a variety of courses to further my knowledge in current education practices. I started my teaching career in experiential education at Natures Classroom. After 3 years of teaching in environmental education I moved on to teaching in public school. I taught for a total of 4 years in Massachusetts and have now been teaching here in Westerly for over 5 years. I love introducing students to the wonders of the world and universe through science and then seeing the students flourish as independent learners and critical thinkers.
