• Welcome to Science at the Virtual Academy
    Science is a way of thinking much more than it is a body of knowledge.

    teacher photo My name is Tara Spitzer-List. I have been teaching science in the district for 14 years.  In a traditional classroom setting I have taught Earth Science, Living Environment, AP Environmental Science, and 7th and 8th grade science.  I am looking forward to teaching virtual science courses as a way to more directly meet individual student needs, both to help students advance and/or to recover credits for graduation.   I will rotate to all of the different schools, but please feel free to use my contact information at the bottom of this page to reach me.
