Welcome to Mrs. Carstens'
8th Grade Science
817-305-4790 ext. 2325
I was born and raised in Meeker, a small ranching community in northwestern Colorado. I graduated from Tarleton State University with a BS in Biology and a minor in Earth Science. The 2012-2013 school year begins my 20th year in education, and my 13th year at HMS.
I live in Grapevine and I have two children - my son is a freshman at UTA majoring in electrical engineering and my daughter is a sophomore at CHHS. I'm an outdoor girl and I love to hike, four-wheel, camp, and fish. My favorite hobby is gardening. I am a recycling nut and even prepare my own compost for my flower beds and vegetable garden! I also love to read, scrapbook, cook and travel.
