Welcome biology students!
My name is Derek Dockter, and I am excited to be your science teacher at Coeur d'Alene High School! This will be my third year teaching science at Coeur d'Alene High School. Before teaching in Coeur d'Alene, I taught high school science (Chemistry, Honors Chemistry, and Forensic Science) in Woodland, CA (2003-2019). I have also mentored students from all over the state of California as a biomedical sciences teacher fellow in the California State Summer School for Math and Science (COSMOS) program from 2006-2018. I love teaching science, serving others, and being taught. I look forward to a great year in our biology and chemistry classes, and I look forward to getting to know you!
