Mrs. Priscilla Serra

I am very excited to be teaching 8th Grade Science at Hartselle Junior High!  Throughout my career I have taught high school science and engineering.  I have also served as part of the administrative team of a few schools, as an advisor, testing coordinator and dean.  My passion is in hands-on science, technology and engineering courses that provide students an opportunity to find relevance in the curriculum and discover new things about themselves.  


When I'm not at school, my husband and I love to be out in nature or at home with our pets.  We enjoy hiking, especially to a waterfall or cave.  At home we love projects, from building porch bed swings to gardening.  We're up early every morning, enjoying some coffee, the sunrise and a walk with our dogs, all before the start of the day.
