Ms. Hillary Fulgham - 8th Grade Science

I am a HUGE science nerd and I wave my "weird flag" high and proud! I also have a reputation of supplying an endless amount of 'dad jokes' and bad science puns. I love being outdoors with my friends and family: gardening, camping, hiking, kayaking, swimming, star gazing - you name it!  In our home, we have a large fish tank with lots of small tropical schooling fish, a second tank with two axolotls (Einstein and Neptune) and my daughter has a guinea pig (Rocket). 

I completed my Bachelor of Science in Biology and my teacher certification through the UTeach Dallas program at The University of Texas at Dallas in 2015. Upon completion, I immediately began working towards my Master of Arts in Teaching Science while working as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for the Science and Mathematics Education Department at The University of Texas at Dallas. I feel extremely fortunate that during my time at UTD I was able to take part in a variety of experiences that I can now share with my students. I have had the opportunity to work in a biochemistry and structural biology-based research lab, focused on the biophysical makeup of macromolecular assemblies, specifically those related to familial ALS; to help develop a Honeybee Biology course, as well as the creation of the UTD apiary; preparing pre-service math and science teachers for the classroom by instructing them on research design and implementation, as well as, conduct my own research in paleotempestology

I began formally teaching in 2017 at the high school level in Environmental Systems and now I am SUPER excited that I can now say that I have been a part of the Strike Science famiLE from the beginning (2020-2021)!
