Welcome to 5th and 6th Grade Math and Science

My name is Morgan Mahar and I am so excited to be teaching here this year. I grew up in Grand Isle and there is something so special about being able to give back to the community that shaped who you are. I look forward to continuing to learn and grow with your students!

Check back here throughout the year to see what we've been up to!
