Hi MIMS Families!!!

I'm James Engler. My Mom called me Jimmy. So do all of my friends and family:-) The kids call me Mr. Jimmy. I've been teaching for 18 years. I've been at MIMS for 5 years. Previously I taught Language Arts, Reading, and History. This year I am teaching 5th grade Science.

I have a Bachelors Degree from the University of Minnesota, and a Masters Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Phoenix.

I've been married to my High School sweetheart, Sue, for 35 years. I have 2 wonderful children; Sara is a Dentist in Brooklyn Center, MN, and My son Tyler is a math teacher right here at MIMS:-)

I love teaching, it's all I've ever wanted to do, and I am passionate about teaching your children a love for learning, and how to be the best that they can be!

Life Science comes next, including plant and animal cell structures, how plants and animals are classified, and then various biomes and ecosystems of living things.

Physical science follows, with a study of How Things Move. We will Introduce Newton's Laws of Motion, and then study some Simple Machines.

We finish the year investigating Earth Science, including; rocks and minerals earthquakes ans volcanoes, erosion, weathering and the different Layers of the Earth. Then finally we explore earth's Natural Resources and how we use them, as well as the impact that has on our environment.
