Ms. Osborne

  • Welcome to Physics!

    My name is Christine Osborne.  This is my 7th year working at Wall High School and my 17th year of teaching physics.

    I have taught 9th-grade physics, introduction to chemistry and physics, astronomy, CP physics, and AP Physics.

    I am excited to work with you and your student this year.
