Mr. Sipes


This will be my 10th year at Mountain Brook Junior High.  My first years of teaching were spent at Drake Middle School in Auburn, Alabama.  I continued my teaching experience at Eagle County Charter Academy in Edwards, Colorado.

While teaching at Drake Middle School, I taught 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science.  I also taught 7th grade language arts and 8th grade social studies.  I was the middle school wrestling coach and assistant football coach.  I served on the student support team, the eligibility committee, and science team.  I was a team leader and the grade level leader for the 7th grade faculty.

At Eagle County Charter Academy, I taught 7th and 8th grade science.  I lead enrichments in kayaking, hiking, snow skiing, and wilderness survival.  I served as the school's science fair coordinator.  I had students place 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in the regional science fair.  I had ten students qualify for the state science fair competition.

At Mountain Brook Junior High, I've taught 7th, 8th, and 9th grade science.  Currently, I teach 8th grade science.  In my first few years at the junior high, I coached football and wrestling.  I serve as the Make-up Testing supervisor.  I also serve on the technology committee.

All information pertaining to the 8th grade science course can be found on my Schoology course.  One can find the course syllabus, classroom notes, extra worksheets, and additional links to support the material.

I'm looking forward to a great year!
