Hi, My name is Bill Schoonover.


For the past two summers, I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach in

The Governor's Institute

of Vermont

Science and Technology

This is a summer science camp for high school students.

The students spend a week doing field research in natural areas.


Last summer I had breakfast with the governor of Vermont.

I also have been known to mud wrestle with geology professors.

My Background:

I received my Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Iowa in 1994.

I also studied marine biology (emphasis in dive metabolism) at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

The summer after college, I did field research (geomorphology and forest ecology) at the Mountain Research Center in Colorado's Front Range.

For five years I worked as a veterinary technician. Most recently, I worked as a phlebotomist at Fletcher Allen Health Care, Vermont's largest medical center.

After my diverse background in medicine and animal sciences, I decided to go into hte wonderful world of teaching.

This fall 1999 I will be student teaching at Champlain Valley Union (CVU) high school
