Mr. Davisson

Science 6 & 7

Welcome!

I am excited to welcome you back to school.  My name is Mr. Eric Davisson and your student is enrolled in my science class this term.  The 2020-2021 school year will be my 7th year at Bella Vista Middle School and 12th year in teaching.  Prior to teaching I worked as a Professional Geologist in the southern California area focusing on groundwater modeling, environmental remediation, rockfall scenarios, fault studies, ground acceleration design and other enivronmental or geotechnical projects.

I am looking forward to a great school year! I love all areas of science and I hope to share my passion for science with your student. One of the great things I love about science is how it can apply to so many things and incorporates the use of math, logical reasoning, art, technology and language arts. This year will be the first year of the new TCI science textbook across TVUSD. I plan to make your child’s learning experience meaningful, interesting and exciting. I enjoying implementing gamification in the learning of science through the use of technology in additon to an emphasis in hands-on lab exercises.

This will be my third year of running our cyber security teams. This is an exciting opportunity area of growth for the students to learn true 21st Century skills. We are the only middle school to have an opportunity for CyberSecurity in our District and one of very few in Riverside County.  Students need no prior computing experience to participate. If you are a parent that works in this field and have an interest in sharing your expertise let me know. I am very excited to offer this to students and look forward to the amazing opportunities in the field of cyber security that is an area expected to have 3.5 million jobs available in 2021.

Please take some time to review my website and Google Classroom. There you will find information on weekly assignments, course syllabus, and other important information or handouts throughout the year. Please review the syllabus online with your student and locate the links on my website to the assignment calendar and Google Classroom.  The syllabus includes the course description, expectations, rules and consequences.

Coming to class prepared is very important.  The following supplies are recommended but not required for this class:

  • single subject composition notebook
  • 2 sharpened pencils
  • sharpner or mechanical lead refills
  • Earbuds/headphones
  • Daily Planner/notebook/calendar (to record homework or notes)
  • Glue sticks, colored pencils, scissors, tape
  • mouse (this is very helpful for some students)
  • personal Chromebook, 2-in-1 or tablet (at parents discretion, please register with office digital device form)

I am excited to begin this upcoming year with you.  My goal is for students to develop a better understanding of science & technology and learn to truly enjoy it.  If there is anything you need to make me aware of, please let me know.  Students at this age can have a hard time speaking out until they are comfortable enough to do so. Meeting the needs of each student is very important to me. Please contact me should you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you,

Mr. Davisson
