Mrs. Amy Cater
My family and I are originally from South Carolina. We moved to Alabama 10 years ago. I graduated from Furman University with a M.S. in Chemistry in 1993, recieved my South Carolina teaching certification in 1996. I recieved my Alabama teaching certification in 2008. I have 22 years of experience teaching science in South Carolina and Alabama. I spent 5 years at R.A. Hubbard, 2 years at Moulton Middle School, and his is my 3rd year at Lawrence County High School. I teach Pre AP Biology and General Biology. My goal is that every student be prepared for their future whether it be college or career by learning self-discipline, responsibility, perserverance, and respect.
All assignments, labs, tests and quizzes for my classes are on Canvas, the link is posted on this pages. Please make sure you check your Canvas account daily. We will also be using Newsela.com to read scientific articles. I have posted a link to Newsela on this page. We will occasionally be using Edpuzzle.com. I have also posted a link to Edpuzzle on this page. I will be using Remind to communicate with students. Remind is an app that will allow me to send reminders of tests, quizzes, homework, etc. to students and/or parents without the exchange of phone numbers. Instructions to join my Remind groups are listed below:
