High School Life Science Teacher: Human A&P teacher, Biology I & Biology II teacher, Microbiology teacher, Environmental Science teacher
Facilitator & Hands-On Educator
2004 Herb Handley Outstanding Science Teacher of the Year Award from MSTA - Mississippi Science Teachers Association. I have taught 23 students within the past 9 years who have scored a Perfect Score on the Mississippi SATP2 Biology I State Test; With the hard work of my students, I successfully held a 96% & above pass rate on the MS SATP2 Bio I State Test for 7 consecutive years! During two of those years, I maintained a 100% pass rate!!! I am so very proud of this and I could not have done this without my students!!!
I have taught subject area state testing science classes for the past 10 years. I have finally been given a break from testing this year!! It seems like eons ago since I was able to teach upper-level science classes with lab periods. I am currently teaching Biology II with 10th & 11th grade students and Human Anatomy & Physiology with 11th & 12th grade students. I am loving every second of it!!! I sponsor the science club, the wildcat medics & coordinate the school's science fair. I also coach the high school dance team.
My mother is a retired biology teacher. I currently teach at the same high school she taught me at!! Many, many memories!! The Apple did not fall from the tree!!!
