7th Grade Science and Health
Ms. May is the new 7th grade science teacher as of 2017. She was born in Hong Kong and her first language is Cantonese. She later moved to the United States and attended Brooklyn College. From a young age, Science was always her favorite subject. Ms. May decided to work at M.S.8 for various reasons. First of all, she LOVES science, and she loves working with students: “I wanted to do something positive,” Ms. May says.
She said it is challenge adjusting to a new community, but also a blessing to teach the 7th grade. Previously, she has worked at two different schools including one in Park Slope, that she was working at last year. During this school year, Ms. May wants to bring fun projects and experiments to the M.S.8 science program.
One of Ms. May’s favorite hobbies is Jiu-Jitsu, (a japanese martial art). When she was younger she had many friends that practiced Jiu-Jitsu, and they would constantly be bragging about it. When she was in graduate school, she saw a large sign near her house advertising Jiu-Jitsu, so she decided to try it out: “And I just fell in love with it,” she exclaims.
