Hello! My name is Camillia Ledbetter and I am officially moving into my second year as a teacher. I have a BS in Biology from Georgia Southern University and I am currently enrolled in the MAT program there. Teaching was not my original plan as I wanted to be involved in field research.

I definitely plan ...

One activity that I enjoyed with my high school students was a hypothetical scenario. I asked them to work together to propose an idea to increase biodiversity on our school campus. They had to take into account the species in the area, what would attract them and which new species would work well with them among other aspects. The ideas were fantastic! Ideas for gardens on t...
