6th Grade Science

 


Welcome to 6th Grade Science!

 

My name is Sharon Gace (pronounced Gay-cee). This is my 23rd  year of teaching, but this is my first year at Doerre. I am a native Texan and grew up in Tomball, Texas. After I graduated from Tombal High School, I received my Bachelor's Degree from Sam Houston State University. I look forward to sharing my love for science and exploration with your children! If you have any questions, my email is always the best way for you to reach me- sgace1@kleinisd.net.
