Welcome to my Homepage.
My name is Terri Ortiz, and I teach at Miami Palmetto Sr. High. I teach 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.
I'm crazy about animals, and my students say I'm crazy! I love nature and everything it encompasses. Travel and adventure are awesome, and I'll try almost anything: boating, rafting, horseback riding, hiking... By the way, anyone addicted to rollercoasters?
I am currently teaching OCEANOGRAPHY and ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE. I am very interested in sharing "cool" lesson ideas pertaining to these topics. In our living classroom we have a great deal of organisms: snakes, mice, various insects, turtles, tarantula, geckos, toads, salt and fresh water tanks, and more. (At home just Hubby, Peanut Dog, and Kit Cat.)
