We invited new IB faculty and staff to introduce themselves to the SPHS IB community.
My name is Carlie Saval and I go by Dr. Carlie with my students. This year I am teaching Pre DP Biology and Pre DP Chemistry. This will be my 3rd year of teaching high school but my first full year at SPHS. (I started in the traditional program in December of last year.)
My educational background is Marine Science and Biogeochemistry. I received my Masters and Doctorate from USF, and my research there focused on using marine fossils from the Gulf of Mexico to better understand how our Earth and its climate has changed over the past 50,000 years.
In addition to teaching in the classroom, I’ve also participated in marine research and SCUBA diving programs with middle and high school students. I love being outside, underwater, and experiencing the beauty of nature!
I am so excited to be a part of the SPHS IB program. 🙂
