Biology I, Foundations of Biology
I graduated High school from Germantown, TN were I was born and raised. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Biology from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. After Many years of working in Medicine and with the encouragement of my wife, who is an elementary educator, I earned my certification in teaching from The University of Mississippi. I began teaching at LHS during the 2018-2019 School yearI have always enjoyed studying the natural world and how it works. So much even that I left medicine to educate others in Biology. in 2016 I married the love of my life, Mrs. Graves and with her encouragement I made the career change.I thoroughly love educating young minds about the amazing field of Biology. As I tell my students you have to love what you do.
Biology is a Mississippi state tested subject area that will be tested in Dec. for fast track biology and in May for year long bio students. The class you are enrolled in will help prepare you for this exam.
