Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Ben Johnston
I live in Athens, AL with my wife Vicki and our two daugters, Sullivan & Sydney. Sullivan is 20 and will be a sophomore at USA in Mobile this school year studying Occupational Therapy. Sydney is 16 and is a cheerleader and cross-country runner and will be a Junior this year. Our family spends a lot of time together reading, watching movies, and playing outside (and traveling to ballgames).
I love what I teach! Biology and environmental science are two of the most important issues being addressed in society today, with most discussions focusing on genetic therapeutics and resource management. Additionally, I love getting my students out of the classroom, not just on campus but off campus as well.
I stay on top of current issues by reading journals of science and listening to podcasts, as well as LOTS of professional development in the sciences.
