Hi, my name is Jake Fincher and I am a science teacher at Dishman Hills High School. I am excited to start my second year at Dishman and look forward to spending another school year with our awesome students. Prior to getting my teaching degree I worked as a field biologist. While I enjoyed every mile I hiked during that time of my life, my career change has allowed me to blend my love of the outdoors and science with my passion for mentoring and teaching. I am all about getting students engaged in science in authentic ways and spending class time outside during the fall and spring quarters. One of our classes this year is Outdoor Learning Project. In this course, students get the opportunity to take their education out of the classroom and connect with nature. We have a lot of fun at Dishman, while at the same time delivering a high-quality education for our students. I am excited for the upcoming school year!
