8th Science Teacher, Team Excellence
Hi! My name is Tammy Sass, and I teach 8th grade science at Southview Middle School. I have been teaching in Ankeny since August 2003.
I earned my bachelor's degree in psychology from ISU in 1997. I knew I wanted to work with kids or dolphins, so I spent time doing both. I trained dolphins at the Indianapolis Zoo, and I held several positions working with at-risk youth. In 2000, I returned to school to earn my master's degree in science education. In 2018, I returned to school again to earn a K-12 endorsement in talented and gifted education.
8th grade science is a phenomenom-based course that integrates ideas from physical science, earth science, and life science. Students work collaboratively on activities that build both content knowledge and problem-solving skills.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and little girl. Occaionally, I have the time to take in a good book.
You can find me in room 2106 at Southview.
The best times to reach me are before school or after school.
Email is the most efficient way to reach me. Feel free to contact me at any time, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I may be available at other times by prior arrangement.
