Mrs. Nisraiyya

Welcome to my Science site...!

A brief introduction about myself: My name is Mrs. Geeta Nisraiyya
My academic credentials include a Masters in Physics & Electronics and NJ State Teaching License in Physical Sciences. I have had the pleasure of serving the South Amboy school community since 2003 and this is my 18th year. On the personal side, I remain married to my late husband, a wonderful man for the last 30 years and have two awesome kids 28 and 25 years young.

At SAHS, besides Lab. Chemistry & Lab. Physics, I have also taught Earth Science (Grade 8), Astronomy-Geology & Oceanography (Grades 11-12), Physical Sciences (Grade 9), Life Science (Grade 7) & Chemistry in the Community (Grades 11-12). 
Currently, I have 5 classes of Lab. Chemistry (Grades 10-12), with one being an Honors class, and a Lab. Physics class (Grades 11-12).

My main goal is to prepare my students to master academic concepts, enhance critical thinking, and become self-directed individuals. My passion for the subject matter and my profession helps me teach my classes in a fun, engaging way with only the student's interests in mind. So parents/guardians, please support me when I push your child to higher expectations as I have the ability to recognize their strengths and firmly believe each one can do it to their full potential! Your effective communication and continued cooperation is highly appreciated. I believe in responding timely to your concerns and the most efficient method is via email: gnisraiyya@sapublicschools.com
 
I'll normally respond within 24 hrs/1 business day. If needed, you may also call the school telephone @ 732-316 7669 and leave a message. Please avail me extra time to get back to you via telephone as I have limited opportunity and access to communicate in privacy.

2020-2021 Lab. Chemistry: 

Lab. Chemistry is a 5 credit elective course offered to juniors/seniors. Most students who want to pursue a pharmaceutical and/or a related medical field career are advised by guidance to opt for this course to facilitate them in college. The prerequisite for this subject is previous Physical Science credits and a solid Math aptitude.

2020-2021 Lab. Chemistry:
On the other hand, Lab. Physics is a weighted 5 credit lab. course offered to juniors and seniors eager to pursue any science/engineering program in college. The course curriculum lays down the foundation of basic mathematical and applied physics building on the prerequisite of an excellent math aptitude and a physical science base. 
This year I have 114 wonderful students as of now, mostly juniors & sophomores with an exception of few seniors.

Looking forward to an exciting educational year! Hop on to our speedy roller-coaster and hold tight or let's mix up a chemical shake!

Important Chemistry/Physics Virtual Class Instructions

Hello students! Hope you had a relaxing break! Welcome to my Lab. Physics & Lab. Chemistry class.

This MP.1, we will meet virtually via Google Meet and discuss live the concepts of Chapter 1. We will review the topics, vocabulary and reinforce the basic fundamentals requisite for the course.
Also, during live instruction, have your notebook/binder, periodic table (Chemistry) and pen/pencil to take notes, and jot questions.

Class grades will be earned for live attendance AND participation (not just logging in and going back to bed;) I will ensure that by calling out your name unexpectedly and/or by asking questions impromptu!

If you missed a class, you lose out on the class grades (as they can not be made up) BUT you can ask me (please do not email me, but you can show up in Student Support on Google Claassroom), or your peers for the class notes/assignments and still work to complete the classwork for other assignment grades such as Homework/Quiz/Test/Project. 

DO NOT lose out on essential grades....it is imperative you attend each virtual class daily. Period Attendance will be taken each class, each day. 
If absent, informing the Main Office may get you excused absence but surely not my class credit!

All my classwork/assignments MUST be completed HANDWRITTEN ONLY. No typed or processed work will be accepted unless specified.

Reminder! Submit notes/work by due date (see grading policy) for Class Grades. Good Luck!!


More details to follow in Google Classrooms. Be on time!
