Welcome to 8th Grade Science!

Hi there! I'm Mr. Radcliffe, and I am so excited to be a science teacher at Gardner Middle School. It's going to be an incredible school year, filled with exciting lessons, projects, labs, and activities, and I cannot wait to share my passion for science within my classroom. As a quick introduction, I have lived in Temecula since 1999, and was once a student in the district! Outside of the classroom, I restore vintage automobiles, travel, and keep up on the latest science topics that I can share with students. 

Please explore my web site as well as the main school site for my classroom expectations, supply lists, calendars, bell schedules, grades, and important school news. As the school year progresses, this site will be an important tool where I will post our current lesson/unit, make-up assignments, cool science videos, and a calendar with tests/other important dates. 

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to email me at

Thank you for visiting!
