Mr. Zaruba

My name is Michael Zaruba (Mr. Z) and I am a 6th-grade science teacher for Huntsville Intermediate. I graduated from Sam Houston State where I achieved the classification Cum Laude for my degree in interdisciplinary studies with a minor in math and science.

  • Science is supposed to be a fun subject. It involves curiosity and engaging activities. Therefore, I try to implement labs to help my students understand concepts. I will be sending emails so that the students are prepared for my lab, and concerns can be addressed. Please be on the lookout for these emails. Sometimes, I may ask for donations to make the lab run smoothly, and it can be anything from paper towels to lab supplies. These are not mandatory but are very helpful. Additionally, be sure to remind your student that labs can only happen if the environment is safe and calm. Therefore, they are expected to come to class prepared and participate in the activities in a safe manner. Let's keep science fun and get our students actively engaged while they explore the amazing subject of science! 

    Thank you all,

    -Mr. Z
