Science 10 (Mrs. Durante)

Welcome to Science 10!                                                    Sept. 5, 2017

My name is Anne Durante and it is my great pleasure to be teaching Science 10 at St. John Brebeuf.  I am returning to SJB to teach Chemistry/Science after being away for 17 years while I raised my family and spent some time teaching at the elementary level.  In this course I hope to inform and inspire your children with an appreciation of the various branches of science and their impact upon our world.  I am attaching the course outline on this page, and I will be using this website for any updates or information you need to know. I look forward to getting to know you and your children! Please feel free to contact me at or by calling the school.
