The mission of Mr. Coey's science class is to provide a safe atmosphere where learning is encouraged through curiosity and wonderment. Through quality teaching, leadership, and communication, I will work hard everyday to ensure my students try their very best in the subject of science as they venture to get to know more about the world around them. Students will always be challenged in class, with everything from informal discussions to lab activities and high-intensity unit tests.
This is my ninth year of teaching at Lakeshore Middle School and the overall experience has been great! There is not a day that goes by where I don't remind myself how lucky I am to be teaching at such a wonderful school.
As a native Ohioan, I began my professional career in 2000 writing for The Morning Journal, a newspaper based in Lorain, Ohio, with a circulation of over 60,000. But after discovering that being a journalist was not for me, I decided to go back to school to obtain my teaching certificate. The rest (as they say) is history.
In 2005, I moved to North Carolina and began teaching at Lakeshore that same year. Over the past eight years, I have taught combinations of sixth and seventh grade science and language arts, including several inclusion and advanced courses. During the 2007-2008 school year, I started our school newspaper, The Wave, which has been an enjoyable venture that has allowed me to further instruct students on the challenging craft of writing. Most recently, I completed my master's degree in middle school education through Gardner-Webb University in May 2012. I am incredibly grateful to have such an honor bestowed upon me.
