Mr. Geoffrey Hightower

I am excited to be joining the SSS community this year! My name is Mr. Geoffrey Hightower and I am entering into my 7th year of teaching science. I quite accidently fell into teaching but I love my job, I love talking about science everyday and most importantly I feel my work is a purpose and NOT a job! 

After graduating Berry College with a B.S. in Biology minors in Chemistry and Psychology, I received a job working in the biotechnology industry in RTP, NC. I worked there for almost 4 years were I got disillusioned with the corporate structure! So, I joined the US Peace Corps! I sold my house, furniture, car and everything I owned and moved to the Philippines. I lived there for nearly 3 years were I worked as an education volunteer. I loved nearly everyday of my Peace Corps service but most importantly I became an educator. After my service I returned to the US to get my masters degree in teaching along with my teaching license. I worked 3 more years overseas in the international school system (in the Philippines). Now I have come home to be close to family! I look forward to a great experience at SSS and can't wait to have fun learning!
