Mrs. M. Teresa Hodan

The two main goals of Pre-AP and AP Biology are to help students develop a conceptual framework for modern biology and to help students gain an appreciation of science as a process. The ongoing information explosion in biology makes these goals even more challenging. Students are encouraged to focus on understanding important relationships, processes, mechanisms, and potential extensions and applications of concepts. As Maria Montesorri stated, what is a Scientist?  We give the name scientist to the type of man who has felt experiment to be a means guiding him to search out the deep truth of life, to lift a veil from its fascinating secrets, and…has felt arising within him a love for the mysteries of nature. 

The last 14 years that I have taught at Churchill.  I hope to instill a new found love in all of my students for the excitement of life and biology.
