Welcome to Mrs. Haney’s Science Classroom Webpage
A little about Mrs. Haney: Hi. I am the eighth grade physical science teacher here at Steel High. Many of you may have already met my one daughter, Kaitlyan and have already heard stories about my husband Joe. I have taught at Steel-High for two years now. I received my Master’s in Education from Drexel University last year. Previously, I worked as a chemist testing everything from water to coal to medicines. I received my BS in Science in 1997 from Waynesburg College. I worked for almost ten years before teaching. So, I tend to relate a lot of the science that I teach to real life experience. I also use outside resources such as Penn State and Gettysburg College Advancing Science. (see the links below). I hope to make students realize just how much fun science really is.
Feel free to e-mail me with questions, comments, or concerns at KHaney@shsd.k12.pa.us
