Welcome to Mrs. Soland's Science Site!  DNA.jpg

Greetings and welcome to Mrs. Soland's science classroom! My name is Mrs. Soland, and I am excited to have you in my class this semester. Here's a little information about me (your teacher):

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and biology from Arizona State University. Afterwards, I worked in special education for two years while earning my Masters degree in Secondary Education from Northern Arizona University.

I have been teaching science for twelve years. I started my career teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science at Pioneer Elementary, and then transitioned over to Cactus High School, so I am very familiar with the Cactus cluster of schools. (Oh, yeah, did I mention I graduated from Cactus High School? Go Cobras!!) I teach  biology and have previously taught integrated science. I am looking forward to a great year at Cactus and in the science classroom.

Please feel free to contact me at any time:
