Welcome to Mrs. Stussy's Webpage!Subjects: Honors Chemistry (Chem &121), Nutrition Science (Nutrn &101), General ChemistryProfessional Biography: I received my Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees at Central Washington University in Nutritional Science and went on to work as a Registered Dietitian for 7 years. I realized my favorite part of my job was teaching so decided to go back to school to become certified as a high school teacher. I attended Saint Martin's University for my credentials. I spent one year working at Centralia Middle School and then landed at my alma mater Tumwater High School where I have been teaching for 19 years!Please use the email link above for Google Classroom codes or other correspondence!Current Schedule:1st Period: Prep2nd Period: Honors Chemistry/Chem &1213rd-5th Periods: Nutrition Science/Nutrn &1016th Period: General ChemistryClass Curriculum and Materials:For Honors Chemistry, you should check out a Chemistry textbook from the THS library and we have a classroom set for your use when at school.
