Jennifer Reynoldsjreynolds@tcss.net205-342-2777Environmental Science, AP Environmental Science, and the Green TeamHey there!This is my eighth year teaching science at Brookwood High School. I grew up in Wetumpka, AL. I received my Bachelors of Science in Biology from the University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE!). I was a camp director for five years at a residential summer camp and year-round environmental learning center. It was during this role that I realized my calling was to teach young people about our incredible planet and all the natural resources it provides. I went back to the University of Alabama to get my Masters in Secondary Education General Science, and I've been blessed to be teaching at Brookwood High School ever since. I just finished the Education Specialist Program at the University of West Alabama. In today's ever-changing, technology-driven world, it's imperative that we all become lifelong learners.My husband is a natural resources field biologist. We have a two year old daughter who absolutely loves to garden and water things with her watering can. We also have a fourteen year old furry, four-legged child named Sir Oscar Meyer Weiner. He's our adopted dachshund, and we call him Oscar for short.I am looking forward to getting to know each one of you as we embark on a hands-on and adventurous approach to learning. Get excited; it's going to be a great year!Click Here to access my InformationNow page for grades and assignments.Remind is a text messaging system that I will use to communicate class announcements and reminders regarding assignments.

In a world with an ever-increasing population rate and quickly depleting natural resources, it's imperative that students of today learn about the world around us and the environmental problems our planet is facing so that they may one day be the ones that figure out a way to achieve a sustainable future for all."Be the change you want to see in the world." - Mahatma GandhiCLICK HERE FOR THE 2019-2020 APES SUMMER HOMEWORK PACKET

The Green Team has had the best year yet with more participation and service hours earned than ever before; a lot of that is thanks to our awesome leaders, Co-Presidents Hunter Swearengin and Lacie Willingham. Tim Nail was awarded the $500 Green Team Scholarship for going above and beyond in his service to our school, our community, and our planet. Congratulations, Seniors! Thanks for being a part of the Green Team; we can't wait to see what kind of difference you're going to make in the world!
