Meet Your Instructor

Welcome to Mr. Koegle's Lessons on Life!

Hello, my name is Mike Koegle and I have the unique privilege of instructing and facilitating two (2) courses, Biology and Health, at the prestigious Academy of the Canyons Middle College High School within the William S. Hart Union High School District.  I am thrilled to be challenging young minds through Engagement, Exploration, Explanation, Elaboration, and Evaluation of the biological sciences.  Pedagogically, I embrace and utilize the power of Collaboration, Communication, Critical thinking, and perhaps most importantly, Creativity with the intentions of molding and guiding 21st century learners' world perspectives.  I have confidence that the students attending today's classes will be the inquisitive innovators and revolutionary entrepreneurs that will shape the future of our dynamic, global community.  

With a foundation firmly rooted in the Performance Expectations as outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), it is my intent  to deliver a rigorous and captivating curriculum that stretches student's talents beyond the traditional pencil and paper approach.  My classroom philosophy embodies the ideology that tomorrow's conundrums can not and will not be resolved through traditional learning approaches, rather, we must approach Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCI) through the lens of Science AND Engineering Practices (SEP), while endeavoring through Cross-Cutting Concepts (CCC). With a three-dimensional approach to learning, it is my hope that students will delve into the wonders of the natural world and seek to preserve our magnificent and awe-inspiring home: The Living Earth.
Here's to a positive and productive school year!
