Teacher BIO:

Mrs Amanda Lee

(Use the contact button -under Science- if you need to contact me via email) 

 

I have been at OBHS for 16 years! I even grew up in OB and attended OB schools myself.

In the past I taught Biomedical Research, Physical Science, Intro to Biology, Biology, Zoology, Marine Biology, Environmental Science, Earth & Space, ACT Science Prep, and Botany. I love science especially biology. I am currently working on my master's degree from Clemson University in Biological Sciences.

I attended NWCC and University of Mississippi. I have a degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. After I married and started a family I wanted to be home with my kids so I took needed classes and obtained my teaching license. 

I have been married for 20 years. I have 2 teenagers: Gracie and Colton and they attend OBHS & OBMS

Course Descriptions

Biology is a required course to graduate. In December and May all of the Biology students will take the Biology State Test. Passing this state test is also required to graduate. This test is factual material that we will be covering this semester. I will teach them what they need to know for the test and prepare them to take the test, but they have to be active participants in the process.
