    Welcome to my Biology Class!  I am Dr. Eric Findeis and I have been teaching Biology in one fashion or the other for over 20 years.  That time includes teaching as an undergraduate (TA in Chordate Biology - an advanced dissection and evolutionary course), graduate student (Histology, Introductory Biology, Comparative Anatomy, Embryology, Ichthyology, and Neurobiology), and as a College Level as a Lecturer at Southwest Missouri State University (Introductory Biology and Comparative Anatomy) and Wake Forest University (Vertebrate Anatomy). 

    My High School Teaching Experience is now in its 14th year.  I have been at R.J. Reynolds for 13 of those years and could not be happier about my position.  I currently teach solely Biology and can be found in Room 112.  Being a Demon has been a challenge and privilege that I can only hope your child (and my student) will understand as I do.  R.J. Reynolds is a special place and I hope that you are as glad to be here as I am.

    My Research Interests were primarily in Anatomy and Evolution.  My Ph.D. thesis was on the Evolution of Sturgeon, but I was involved in work on newts, functional morphology, and development.  One of the great benefits of such research interests was that I was involved in all sorts of different projects and have a broad experience in biology ranging from ecological work to genetics.  My greatest love in Biology lies with organisms and understanding how they are specialized to survive and thrive in Nature.  I still have that perspective and your children will be exposed to example after example in my class of the fantastic diversity of Life on Earth.
