Welcome

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:

  1. achieve at future undertakings in science at the high school level and beyond.
  2. allow the student to understand the world around them, so as to make educated decisions about their future.
  3. 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.
