Having taught up and down the East Coast, biology teacher Patricia Habersham brings 13 years of experience, along with a positive attitude, to Jamestown’s science department. Dr. Habersham replaces previous science teacher, Tamara Anderson, who recently moved to North Carolina.

Dr. Habersham taught chemistry and anatomy at Northern Guilford High School, in Greensboro, North Carolina, “but I missed Williamsburg,” she explained. Before North Carolina, she lived in Williamsburg and taught Forensic Chemistry at Hampton University.

With experience teaching a wide variety of ages, ranging from 14 to 22, Dr. Habersham said that her favorite age to teach is 16. “I love teaching sophomores because I like to mold them for college and I feel like I make an impact on their lives,” she said.

Since biology is a sophomore class with students typically ages 15 and 16, Dr. Habersham said she was more than excited to receive her teacher position at Jamestown.

“My degree is in Biochemistry, which I received from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh,” she said. A Biochemistry degree covers several high school sciences and allows her the opportunity to instruct them.

Habersham said she has adjusted well to the new atmosphere and has observed many things she likes specifically at Jamestown. “I love my students, but I also love the block schedule instead of the traditional yearlong classes,” she explained. The semester long classes are new to her because her previous schools ran on a traditional yearlong class schedule.

Teaching three classes, Dr. Habersham sees a number of faces a day and has started to make an impression on her students. “I have Dr. Habersham for biology and she has helped me progress and understand the subject more thoroughly with her style of teaching,” freshman Nadia Parras said.

Dr. Habersham has many different skills that she hopes to incorporate into her lessons and labs, as she continues to become an even greater member of the Eagle family.

“I am looking forward to bringing more real-life applications into the classroom and making myself comfortable at Jamestown,” Habersham said. “I plan on creating stronger relationships with my students and fellow teachers and having a great few years at Jamestown.”
