Hello, future Herpetologists!!!
My name is Mr. McKee, and I am more than excited to introduce the very first of it’s kind Our Lady of Fatima Herpetology program!!! I have over 30 years of experience working with reptiles, and I am beyond excited to introduce a program not offered in ANY middle school within at least 500 miles of our amazing school (maybe even in the entire country)!
This Herpetology program is truly a one-of-a-kind experience geared towards introducing students to the Zoological aspect of science, with the main focus being on Herpetology – the study of reptiles and amphibians.
During the span of the year, we will be using in-the-class reptiles and amphibians we currently have to do hands-on research into what make these critters tick! For those reptiles and amphibians we do not have in the classroom, we will be utilizing the Herpetology lab my father established in 1986 at Huntington High School, the Marshall University Herpetology Department, resources at the Columbus and Cincinnati Zoos, and much more!!
