John Adams

Middle School

Sarah Baxter

Hello, my name is Sarah Baxter and I am an 8th Grade Earth Science teacher here at John Adams Middle School. 

I have been teaching science for the past seventeen years in both high schools and middle schools.  Just three years ago I moved to Rochester from Orlando, Florida and I love being back in the Midwest.  I am thrilled to be teaching science at John Adams Middle School this year.  I was a double major in Biology and Earth/Space Science at Florida State and later earned a Masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  As a result I consider myself to be an exceptionally lucky individual because I am able to do my two favorite things everyday - teach students and do science!

This year I am happy to announce that my classes will be hosting a senior intern, Mr. Matthew Brumfield, from St. Mary's University until the end of December.

I am looking forward to having an amazing year exploring Earth Science with all of you!
