• Welcome biology students!

    My name is Derek Dockter, and I am excited to be a part of the science department at Coeur d'Alene High School!  Before moving with my family to Coeur d'Alene this summer, I taught high school science in Woodland, CA beginning in 2003.  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 of biology and getting to know you!
