You askedWill we be doing many labs this year? Will there be many projects this year? Did you major in biology? How much homework a night?What was your SAT score?Is there late work credit? If so how much?How many hands on activities this year?What do you expect from your students?2How much individual learning is there going to be?What lessons are we learning in bio?Are we going to dissect organisms?Will we have homework over weekends and other breaks?How long will each unit be?Will it be fun?Will there be games?How did you come to love biology?How many years have you taught?Why does biology help us?What is most interesting thing about biology?How difficult are the projects?Are labs different from the ones in middle school?Mix chemicals?When will we use biology in life?What units will we learn?Is it easy to get lost during a lesson?Who has impacted your life?One thing youd change about school?How will I be able to manage my workload in order to be successful?Will we learn about evolution?What life forms do we study?What high school did you attend?Favorite teaching methods?Favorite memory with students?Are we learning about humans or all life?What are the differences between blood types?Why did you choose biology or become a biology teacher?Will we have one main focus this year?Will we have reviews before test?Will we be doing calculations a lot in biology?Are you good at explaining things in different ways?What makes honors different from regular biology?What is your theory on how humans evolved into what we are today?How old are you?Do you have any pets?Will we be able to work on homework during class?Is this class difficult?Do you play volleyball? Position?Will there be a final?What makes Honors different from general biology?What kinds of careers require a knowledge of biology?Will we be learning about disease?Dissect an animal?Cell phone policy?Do you give extra credit?What was the best memory of your summer?

Why Biology?Understanding nature, natural historyCareers includeInterestingUse in society: health, fitness, medicine, disease, environment, making decisionsAppreciation for what we need on earth, what we give, and with who/what we share this living space a finite place?

My goals for the year:To engage you in science both here and outside of school, enough to keep you interested, learning, and making connections between science and the real world. I want you to know what is out there for you in terms of careers.To teach/help you strengthen your communication skills your evidence based explanations to be concise, accurate, justified, and confident.To teach you biology to prepare you for tests, future science classes, college, the work force, general problem solving.To stretch your organization skills, your diligence and pride in your work, and to become a strong, active learner.To be a positive influence on your journey to earning the life you want.
