Hello My Name Is...

Stephenie Higgs

Hello and welcome to my page!

I 'd like to introduce myself! My name is Stephenie Higgs and I grew up in Topeka. After high school, I attended KU. I studied science education and received both my bachelor's and master's degree there. I began my teaching career in Gardner and taught there for 13 years. This will be my fourth year at Spring Hill High School. My husband and I have been living here in the community with our daughter Rylee for the last seven years. I am a sophomore class sponsor, LINK Co-Coordinator, Scholar's Bowl Assistant coach, and I teach Freshman Biology and College Biology.

Biology

Welcome to Biology 1! This class is an introduction to life science course. It is a one-year required laboratory course designed to give a broad overview of the living world! We are engaged in many daily activities, projects and laboratories (including dissections!) that are designed to give my students a better understanding of diversity among organisms and the function of various biological systems. Topics include but are not limited to: cellular structure and function, genetics, evolution, ecology, taxonomy, and the kingdoms of life. One of my major goals of Biology is to help students see the connection in what they are learning to life in the real world.

Throughout the year, students will receive assignments to be done in class and at home. If is very important that they complete these and to the best of their ability as they really help to comprehend the material. Additionally, they are worth points and will play a significant role in determining the students' final grades.

Our tests in Biology 1 are approximately every 4 weeks, give or take a few days depending upon the length of individual units. I always hand out review guides to the students a week in advance to encourage early studying. Please let me know if you ever have any questions as I am huge on communication. Thanks and looking forward to a great year.
