Abingdon High School Biology teacher/ Science Department Chair

To tell you a little about myself, I have a BS in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Secondary Education from King College in Bristol, TN and a MS in Biology Education from Radford University. I teach as an adjunct Biology Professor at VHCC as well. This will be my 14th year teaching and I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year in biology class!

Course Description: In biology, students observe and analyze the characteristic properties of living organisms, including becoming familiar with homeostatic functions, exploring cellular structure and function and mechanisms of transport within cells, classifying organisms, and surveying the kingdoms of living organisms. Students utilize critical thinking skills to develop a greater appreciation of life and mans role in preserving life and the environment. They also analyze the cause and effect of the physical of the physical environment on the health and well-being of organisms, as well as develop skills in the application of proper laboratory techniques and safety. Components of this aspect of the course include microscopy, use of dissection instruments, and handling of laboratory chemicals and specimens. There will be six weeks projects assigned in the Honors courses, and there will also be occasional projects in the general Biology I courses.
