Hi!  My name is Callie "VK" Dollahon and I will be teaching Earth Science this year at Wando.  I graduated from USC with a degree in Marine Science in 2007 and have a Masters in Education from the College of Charleston. I spent 2010-2011 living in Copenhagen, Denmark, as part of a Fulbright Research Grant studying the implementation of authentic and interdisciplinary content standards in science education.  

I am passionate about science and STEAM Education, and I absolutely love teaching at Wando.  I am part of the Wando Digital Learning Cohort and use Google Chromebooks and tools in my curriculum.  I was fortunate to be able to use my work here at Wando to publish a chapter on using digital tools and technology in a research publication called Cases on STEAM Education in Practice.  I strive to make data based decisions for the growth of all our students.  

I am married and live with my husband who is in the Air Force, our temperamental cat, and energetic lab puppy.  Life is always an adventure with them.  I enjoy running, and my favorite place to jog is the Cooper River Bridge.  My hobbies range from carpentry to quilting to languages and travel.

Earth Science:
Earth Science is an interdisciplinary topic course that covers elements of physical science, chemistry, biology, environmental science, and geology.  Students will explore topics such as climate change, space, the fossil record, plate tectonics, and local SC geology.  Laboratory activities will provide numerous opportunities for students to develop science process skills, critical thinking,  and apply concepts to real-world topics.

Extra Help:
Students are encouraged to make appointments to stay after school for extra help, study, review, or make-up work.  

Google Classroom:
Students wishing to keep up to date in class can access our activities and materials through Google Classroom.  They will need to use their CCSD school gmail user id (username@ccsdschools.com) and password to login to Google Classroom.  Parents wishing to see our course calendar can access through the course page above.  Note: Google classroom is only accessible to users with a CCSDschools.com e-mail address, so outside users without that account will ONLY be able to see the calendar on the wandohigh.com directory page.
