My name is Cheryl Terranova, I just completed my 18th year in the Jackson School District. I am truly thrilled to be  teaching and look forward to working with all the stakeholders in the community. We are all about preparing your child to succeed, now is the time to develop a strong work ethic and solid study habits. Before anything else, I want you to know that I care about the learning and well being of my students. I am excited to work with your students to help them grow into responsible and hardworking young adults with a love for science.

    For this reason, I have high expectations for the learning and behavior of my students.                                               I want us to work together to help all of our students.

    My goal is to make learning and understanding science easy and fun for all.  It is through the study of science that your child will develop critical thinking and problem solving skills. I love teaching science because it provides an authentic backdrop for learning and applying essential skills while fostering the critical thinking and problem solving skills necessary to succeed in life.

    I look forward to working with you and your child to make this a positive and successful school year!

    We will focus on habits that are paramount to a student’s success for their future.  The first such habit would be coming to class on time and prepared, with all materials in hand for the day’s study.  We will stress maintaining an organized, up-to-date notebook and overall organizational skills. Completing homework in a careful, diligent manner will be another key to success. 

    If your student is routinely spending more than an hour to complete the homework/remote learning lesson, please let me know.  I understand that students have other homework and out-of-school activities and I am willing to make accommodations where appropriate.


    Grades per district policy will be based on homework (25%), classwork (25%), and tests/quizzes/projects (50%).


    If a student is absent from school, he or she is still responsible for the material. Students must get missed homework assignments from google classroom and see me to review missed lessons. 

    Google Classroom

    We have a google classroom.  This includes copies of the students notes,  homework assignments, labs, and projects.  Having the student log in can be useful to parents/guardians who wish to monitor their student’s study habits and work effort.  This has proved helpful for both students and to parents/guardians who want to help their students succeed.
