Ms. Melissa Eastham
Welcome to Aquatic Science Headquarters at Wagner High School!
My name is Melissa Eastham and I am very excited to be connecting students to the worlds of conservation biology, ecology, geography, marine biology as outlined by the award-winning curriculum developed by Dr. Rudolph Rosen at Texas A&M in partnership with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. My background is a B.S. in Biology from Louisiana State University, professional training by San Antonio River Authority and Texas Parks and Wildlife, and 1 year as a T-Bird!
My objectives for my students are that while we learn about the ways aquatic systems are impacted by natural and human forces we will practice learning techniques that they will take with them to college. We work hard to develop our reading and writing skills, and practice professional courtesy, as well as teamwork and communication skills which will empower them to get the most out of their lives beyond Karen Wagner High School.
