I have taught at Lee Magnet High School since the new campus opened in 2016. I teach honors chemistry, and AP Chemistry. Before I taught I was a chemist for 6 years at various companies. Also, throughout my teacher career, I have coached soccer, and football. I am currently an assistant coach for the girls soccer team. Lastly, I am the sponsor for Science Olympiad and have been since I came to Lee magnet in 2016.
This is my sixth year at Lee Magnet High but I have been teaching both math and science for twenty five years. I received my undergraduate degree in microbiology from Xavier University and my teaching certification from Louisiana State University. Prior to teaching, I was a Lab Scientist for the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals in the immunology and biochemistry sections. I have served as Science Department Head, Mentor Teacher and Teacher of the Year throughout my teaching career. I am married and have three children and two grandchildren. In my free time, I enjoy interior decorating and am a Sunday school teacher.
This is Mr Miller's 31st year of teaching chemistry. He has coached baseball for 15 years, and he is a Long time member of Baton Rouge Mardi Gras. He has one daughter, and it is his second time at Lee. He was at Lee for it's first year at valley park.
I teach Biology 1 Honors, Intro to Biomedical Science, Physical Science, and our Senior Biomedical Capstone. In the past I have taught regular Biology, Comparative Anatomy and Physiology, Genetics, Cell Biology, and Principles of Biomedical Science.
As the first member of my family to attend college and graduate school, I understand the importance in being given opportunities to explore career paths and advanced education as early as possible. I attended LSU for my undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and was a recipient of the NSF funded fellowship, La-STEM Scholars. During my graduate schooling I was a teaching assistant at LSU for six years and taught freshman and senior level biology courses- most extensively Intro Biology Lab I/ II for Majors and Vertebrate Physiology Lab. Working with students passionate about the fields of biology and medicine was an amazing experience and ultimately lead to the decision to pursue a career in education.
Mr. Landry graduated from SELU in 2019 with a degree in Biological Sciences with concentrations in Chemistry and Microbiology. He is now a brand new teacher, and he is happy to start this journey at Lee Magnet High.
I have a PhD in Biosciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. Prior to beginning my high school teaching career, I was a post-doc at LSU. I have 3 years of high school teaching experience. I am passionate about teaching biology and strive to foster inquisitiveness about science in my students.
