Hello My Name Is...

Stephanie 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 and received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees there. I began my teaching career in Gardner and taught there for 13 years. This will be my third year at Spring Hill High School. My husband and I have been living in Spring Hill with our daughter Rylee for the last five years.

This year I will be teaching freshman Biology and College 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. College Biology This is offered as a dual credit class. Students will receive high school credit and can enroll through JCCC for credit there are well. This course introduces non-majors to selected concepts and principles that form the foundation of an understanding of how biological systems operate. Biological systems will be investigated at a variety of levels, from chemical to the biosphere, and the unity of diversity of life will be examined in light of evolutionary and genetic processes. There will be approximately 3 hours of lecture and 2 hours of lab a week.
