• Welcome Students and Parents/Guardians:

            Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Vanguard, "The finest school in the land."  More importantly, welcome to Biology.  Biology is life...literally.

            Our Biology class will achieve much this year in terms of academic and personal growth.  Good communication among parents, teachers, and students is an important key to this growth.  To facilitate that growth, my goal is to make this year both interesting and challenging. 

            Additional information about this class is provided in the syllabus (class handout and available on this site).  Please read that syllabus, sign, detach the bottom portion (it is marked), and turn that portion into me to indicate your understanding and support of the classroom system.

            Also note that, if you ever have any comments, questions, or concerns, I am available for phone calls and meetings (by appointment) before most school days.  To schedule a meeting, you may contact me via jesica.markel@marion.k12.fl.us or (352)671-4900.

            Thank you for taking the time to visit this site.

            Best wishes for an awesome school year.
