Mrs. Lynne Bleeker
Life Science and Honors Life Science
Welcome to Parkview! I teach life science for the Gold 7 team.
I am married to Dan Bleeker, and we have two wonderful children, Joseph and Katie. Both kids are graduates of Ankeny High School, living in Ames. My bachelor's degrees are in biology and French from Iowa State. My Master's Degree is from the Ford Fellows Mathematics and Science Project from University of Washington. I enjoyed an internship working in biotechnology at Immunex in Seattle. My Middle School Endorsement is from Viterbo. (Don't get me started talking about young adolescent brain development!) I was awarded the Presidential Award in Math and Science Teaching. I love middle school kids and I am delighted to be teaching science to 7th graders again at Parkview. As a busy teacher and mom, I do not have much free time! But when I do, I enjoy reading, music, coffee with friends, scrapbooking, various crafts, and being outside with my family.
The fastest way to contact me is through email at firstname.lastname@example.org You can also call Parkview at 965-9640 x1217. However, I am usually busy with students or planning with fellow teachers, so a same-day response is less likely with a phone message. Volunteers are always welcome in my classroom; will you check that you are current with your paperwork with the district and the school? If you could email a day ahead to let me know you are coming, I can be more ready for you. Thanks!
