Mrs. Sheree Stewart - 8th Grade Science/Earth and Environmental Science

Welcome to my web page.  I teach 8th Grade Science and Earth/Environmental Science. I am married (31 years) and have 120 8th grade children:). I enjoy cycling, yardwork, traveling, DIY home projects, University of Alabama football, singing, ice cream, peanut M&M's, and researching cool science stuff! I grew up in Phenix City, Alabama and began teaching middle school in 1991. I taught in Georgia for 13 years before moving to North Carolina in 2004.  This will be my 18th year teaching in North Carolina, and my 8th year as a Hickory Ridge Middle Maverick. My goal is to inspire my students to be curious about the world around them, to ask questions, and to develop the same love of science that I have!
