Welcome to Fun with Biology
My name is Candace Roy. I have been teaching science in Marion County Public High Schools for 23 years. I have been at Vanguard for the last 10 years. I love biology and I hope that you will come to love biology as well.
I have two wonderful children, 4 cats, 2 birds, 2 dogs, 19 chickens, 2 goats and 1 lizards. My household is an experience in biology. I love getting out in nature by camping, hiking, canoeing, and more.
I truly believe science, especially biology, can only be learned and appreciated by engaging in real science. We will be conducting many experiments throughout the year.
I am looking forward to a fun, exciting, and educational year.
I will be using Microsoft Teams to distribute materials and interact with students. There are tutorial videos on Youtube and on the MCPS homepage for getting started in Microsoft Teams. I will devote a whole block period in the first week of school to training students on Microsoft Teams. Please get the Teams app from your app store if you have a cell phone.
