WELCOME TO MS. MOWRY'S CLASS!

I'm thrilled to be starting my seventh year of teaching and my second year of teaching at Lake Creek High School. GO LIONS! This year I will be teaching Advanced Biology and AP Environmental Science (APES).

 

Let me give you a little background about myself. I grew up in The Woodlands and graduated from The Woodlands High School in 1999. I was most passionate about medicine and music in school, so I packed my bags for Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University. After earning my bachelors degree in biomedical engineering, I spent the next decade working in biomedical research and healthcare architectural planning. After the housing market crash, I found myself in a career transition wondering what to do next.  My search eventually led me back to Vanderbilt for my M.Ed. in Learning and Instruction. I received an offer to pilot AP Biology in a small private school in Savannah, GA after two years of teaching in TN. After my third year in GA, homesickness caught up with me and I've finally arrived to the great state of Texas after a long vacation!

 

I love my work as a teacher and enjoy designing thoughtful activities to engage students in learning skills to solve real-world biological and environmental problems. In addition to teaching, I am also the faculty sponsor for Interact at LCHS, a wonderful club that believes in "Service before Self". My classroom motto is "Speak Life", as the Latin root word bio translates "life". I believe in creating a classroom culture where students feel comfortable expressing their ideas verbally in a class discussion model and apply their learning in group projects. Science is highly collaborative and requires good communication skills, not just discovery of information to apply in isolation.

This is Emily Mowry

Advanced Biology is a course designed to prepare students for the Advanced Placement® (AP) Biology course. This lab-oriented class is designed to provide an introduction to biological topics stressed in the AP® course. Students will learn process skills involved in scientific problem solving which will allow them to become self-starters and independent workers in the AP® course. Areas stressed will be cellular and molecular biology, evolution, environmental biology, and phylogeny. All laboratory exercises are designed to reinforce concepts and process skills. This course differs from the level class in pace, depth of laboratory analysis and application of mathematical modeling.

The Advanced Placement®(AP) Environmental Science course is designed to engage students with the scientific
principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships within the natural world. The course requires that students identify and analyze natural and human-made environmental problems, evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them. Environmental science is interdisciplinary, embracing topics from geology, biology, environmental studies, environmental science, chemistry, and geography.

College Course Equivalent:
The AP Environmental Science course is designed to be the equivalent of a one-semester, introductory college course in environmental science.

Prerequisites:
Students should have completed two years of high school laboratory science—one year of life science and one year of physical science (e.g., a year of biology and a year of chemistry). Due to the quantitative analysis required in the course, students should also have taken at least one year of algebra. Also desirable (but not necessary) is a course in earth science.
