My name is Jeff Hodges. I have taught science for 18 years and have been a high school counselor for 4 years. I will be teaching Honors Biology and Biology at Buchanan High School for the 2011-2012 school year. I provide a challenging and yet rewarding experience for each student through the use of "Hands-On" science. I believe my class provides each student with the basic fundamentals of biology, which will ultimately allow them to accomplish three goals:
- achieve at future undertakings in science at the high school level and beyond.
- allow the student to understand the world around them, so as to make educated decisions about their future.
- fulfill the science lab course requirements for both high school and college admission.
I have very high standards as well as high expectations for the students in my room both academically and behaviorally. I always do whatever is necessary to encourage every student to reach her/his highest level of achievement.
