Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Maya Quinn
Welcome! I am Miss Quinn, the 7th-grade science teacher here at Green Acres
I am a product of Birmingham City Schools and a recent graduate of Samford Univerity with a B.S. in Environmental Science, concentration in policy and management. I am a member of the Teach for America Alabama region and the Gates Millenium Scholars cohort. I am also an active alumni member of Delta Xi Phi (ΔΞΦ) Multicultural Sorority Inc., Omega Chapter.
I grew up being raised by my mother and grandmother and spent a great deal of time in her backyard garden. This is where my love of science blossomed. Asking why plants behaved a certain way or why some insects were good for the soil and other deadly to plants.
I believe that everyone is a scientist and they just don't know it yet. Most science is done through observation and inquiry, so there will be plenty of room for questions in this class!
I know that Green Acres is full of resilient students and staff that will make this year amazing, regardless of present circumstances. Feel free to email me to know more about any of the programs I am involved in or any other questions you may have
