Ms. Lindsay O'Gan
My name is Lindsay O'Gan, and I'm thrilled to be teaching 8th grade science here at Danforth Junior High! I graduated from Texas State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and am certified to teach 4th-8th grade science. Prior to becoming a teacher I was a veterinary nurse for over a decade and helped start Austin Pets Alive's no-kill shelter program. I loved working with animals and getting to "do science" every day - taking x-rays, drawing blood, assisting in surgery - it was all very rewarding and enjoyable. After having children of my own I realized that my passion for animals was rapidly evolving into a bigger passion for children and I decided to change careers. Now I get to share my enthusiasm for science while having a positive impact on the lives of kids every day, and I love every minute of it!
Agendas for science class are released every week. These agendas are emailed to the account on record with the registrar and to the student's school email account. Please read through these agendas to get an idea of what we'll be learning that week in class, and so that you know when students need to study for tests! :) If you're not getting the weekly agendas please let me know.
