A little about me... My name is Betsy Bollinger and I teach 8th grade science at Tri Valley Middle School.  This is my 14th year teaching and I am looking forward to getting the year started.  I am certified to teach grades 4-9 Math and Science.  Teaching is truly my passion and I look forward to working with students each day!

I live outside of Zanesville with my husband, 2 kids, bonus kids, and 2 dogs! Reagan is 21 and a kennel master at the Muskingum Vounty Adoption Center, Mason is 18 and currently attending Ohio State-ATI in Wooster Ohio, Reece is 18 and working for Kokosing and Landyn is 15 and is in 10th grade at TVHS.  Bode and Copper are my pups.  We like to spend our time traveling, both near and far, doing anything outdoors and attending the many extra-curricular activities they are involved in cheerleading, dirt track racing, tumbling, 4H activities and dance.  We love getting together with family on weekends and with any free time we have.

In 8th grade science we will study life science (species and reproduction), physical science (forces and motion) and earth science.  It should be a great year!.
