My name is Mikala Duffield. I received my Bachelor's degree in biology from Cedar Crest College. I received my Master's degree in biology and my teaching certification from Shippensburg University. I live in the Mercersburg/Greencastle area with my husband, sons, and various pets.
I have always loved science and I am excited to be sharing that love of science with all my students. This year I will be teaching Biology 1 for freshmen. I try my best to keep students engaged during class with activities, labs, and plenty of practice with difficult science concepts. My teaching philosophy is simple, teach the materials through a variety of methods. I try to make everyday a little bit different so that students don't do the same thing every day from week to week. I believe that all students can achieve success as long as they are willing to work for it. I am always available for my students if they need help or have questions.
