Mrs. Alissa Rice

Welcome to my class! I am starting my 20th year in education, 6th year at LPS. I have taught 7th and 8th grade science, Biology, IPC, Chemistry, Physics, Environment Systems, and Anatomy & Physiology. I spent 3 years teaching biomechanics, nutrition and exercise physiology at UNT in Denton.

I am married to Arnie, we have 3 boys (Kaden, Clay and Harper), one daughter (Avery), and 5 dogs (Vader, BDub, Kahlua, Mr. Weenie, and Chloe). I love all sports and working out. I have coached volleyball, basketball and track for 16 years, This year will be my 4th year as the Varsity Head Volleyball Coach. My family loves to travel and go on crazy adventures.

I LOVE science; how it is ever changing is awesome!! How it relates to everything we do is fascinating. I love the fact that you get to become little detectives to figure out how something works. I am looking forward to this year and getting to know everyone.
