There is a single Light to Science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.Isaac Asimov.Eric K. Findeis' Reynolds WebSiteBiology Teacher @ R.J. Reynolds High SchoolContact me at firstname.lastname@example.org via School Phone: 727-2061
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.
