Mrs. Melanie Blackmon Seal



Welcome to Biology I and AP Biology II!! This is my 403rd year of teaching... really its my 15th year of teaching here at HHS and my 20th year in education! I am looking forward to guiding the students as they grow in wisdom and stature in their understanding of Biology and Science Reasoning, their capacity to collaborate with peers and in their leadership abilities, and in their self confidence and capabilities as a logical, scientific thinker. I will be teaching Bio I Honors and AP Biology II. 

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Biology and General Science Education from University of New Orleans in 1999 and gained my National Board Certification in Secondary Science Education in 2013.


Supplies for Biology I and AP Biology:

1 1/2 -2 inch ring binder

Ink Pens and pencils for class

Loose leaf paper



Class Design: 

I use Google Classroom in my class and we wil be using chromebooks provided by our district and from funds donated by our friends at Valero! Google classroom is a tool that allows me to post announcements and reminders for students. It also allows for class assignments and submission to be posted and collected digitally.

To access Google classroom: (Assignments will be listed and turned in on the Google classroom page)

Please use the following link and have your child log into their Google account. Once logged in, you can review class announcements, assignments, and course information. You can also view Google Docs from the "Google Classroom" link on the left side of the menu.
