    Hello BioBuddies! My name is Mrs. Vogel-Scheidt ("vogue" + "elle" + "shhh" + "height").

    Our Honors Biology course is focused on Storylines (scenarios/phenomena) to promote the "inquiry-based" learning model. This is NOT your typical Science class. Students will be required to be "hands-on" and "minds-on" in every class.
    --> This Honors course is rigorous and requires mature behavior and a willingness to succeed. Homework is a required part of accelerated study.

    My Education and Professional Background

    Former industry executive for: Research & Development/Formulation, Clinical Science, & Food Safety (pharma, supplements, cosmetics, foods). Transitioned to K12/College teaching in 2018.

    • AZ Teacher Certification in Biology and Chemistry
    • BS Biochemistry (Arizona State University)
    • MEd Educational Technology (Boise State University)
    • MS Biology (University of Nebraska) - in process

    My Educational Philosophy

    As a classroom teacher, it is my goal to help each student transform into responsible, innovative, and hard-working young adults. The overarching goal of secondary education is "to know thyself". As such, I integrate many different methods as part of our Science activities, with the expected outcome of increased confidence, character and content knowledge.
    - Social & emotional learning (SEL)
    - Goal setting
    - Reading/writing/media/graphical literacy
    - Bioethics
    - 21st century skills for college/career preparation
    - Focusing on our talents, passions, and personal mission to find our unique purpose to share in this world.
