Biddeford High School
I am have been teaching in Biddeford for 23 years. I was responsible for providing satellite communication for the entire school district. Recently, I have developed an ecology and biotechnology program here in Biddeford. In it's pilot year, the biotechnology program is the only one of it's kind in the state. The students are provided with a series of hands-on inquiry-based exercises that allow them to work through many of the fundamental concepts and processes of molecular biology and biotechnology. I established an advisory board consisting of officials from the Maine Dept. of Education, representatives and researchers from the biotechnology industry, and area universities.
