Schnabel, Anne


Welcome

Welcome

Welcome to Mrs. Schnabel's Science Class! 

Whether we will be exploring Chemistry or Physics together, I hope you will enjoy what these classes have to offer.  These can be challenging courses but whether or not you forsee yourself using these in your future, you will be suprised at how they will help shape your thinking and how you look at the world everyday.   

I can be reached by phone at (210)397-5150, ext 3176, or by email through:  http://nisd.net/contactus.  

These are some of my favorite quotes that you are sure to hear throughout the year.

"Never regard study as a duty, but as the enviable opportunity to learn; to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy, and to the profit of the community to which your later work belongs." - Albert Einstein

"Fear of failure must never be a reason not to try something." - Frederick Smith

"No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try." - Yoda (The Empire Strikes Back)

Meaning: How often have we all said "I'll try" when asked to do something? But the fact is, either you will do it... or you won't. There really is no "trying" as Yoda has pointed out. Either you will study... or you won't. Either you will do your homework... or you won't. Either you will strive daily to learn ... or you won't. There is no "in between" which "trying" implies.
