This course is designed to give students an in-depth view of the exciting world that we live in. Major topics will include scientific method, chemistry/biochemistry, cell parts, cell processes (including photosynthesis, respiration, division), genetics, gene technology, ecology, evolution, botany, and zoology. At the end of the year, all students will take the state biology test to demonstrate their knowledge on all of these topics!
About the Teacher
I am an 20 year teaching veteran, and this is my 7th year teaching biology in Madison County Schools! I LOVE teaching at both Rosa Scott and Madison Middle, even though it makes me a little hard to catch up with! Both schools are awesome and offer students a unique educational experience. The other part of my career was spent at St. Joseph Catholic School where I taught Biology I Honors, Human Anatomy & Physiology, and AP Biology. I am a graduate of Millsaps College and have a Bachelor of Science degree in biology with special emphasis in secondary education. I LOVE teaching biology, and can't wait to meet all of my new students this year! I am happily married (14 years) and have two children, Mary Palmer (age 12) and Thomas (age 7). We currently live in Vaughan along with our 2 pups Rey and Maddie, kitten Midnight, turtle Sheldon, and fish Bob. The picture below is super old, but I love it because it really captures the spirit of my family!
