Mrs. Julie Thumma

Welcome to Seventh Grade Science! I am looking forward to starting the school and to meeting you. As you prepare for our first day together, please have a composition notebook, earbuds, and pens / pencils for science class. Students usually use a total of two composition books during the year.   

 Please take time to read this document I posted under the tab "Course Overview" because it contains important information for parents and students.  Contact me if you have questions  at

I earned a BS in Earth-Space Science / General Science / Environmental Education from Shippensburg University in 1995 and a Master's in Educational Development and Strategies from Wilkes University in 2000.  I have taught at Big Spring Middle School since 1997.
