knowledge is power.jpg 


    I graduated from USC-Aiken with a B.S. in Biology and have been teaching in and out of the classroom for over 20 years.  I have had the honor of teaching at Strom Thurmond High School and South Aiken High School before coming to Emerald High School.  I love adopting rescue dogs and traveling.  I had the great fortune of traveling to the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, which is extra special for a biologist.  My goal as a teacher is to get the students actively engaged in the learning process by incorporating many activities and lab experiments into the curriculum.  I also wish to emphasize the benefits of having an understanding of biological science in our rapidly changing world of health and technology.  Basic knowledge gives us the power to make better decisions for ourselves and society.  My hope is to provide a great deal of information in a relaxed and fun learning environment.  Biology class is a lab science and has an End of Course Exam worth 20% of the student's final grade.  Biology II Zoology is a second level Biology class that studies the Animal Kingdom in the context of industrial use and conservation.  It is expected that the student has successfully completed Biology I before entering Zoology.  I'm available for help when the student asks and will make every effort to help each student succeed.
