A New Face in the Science Department

A New Face In The Science Department At OHS

By Jade Max


This year at OHS we have many new teachers joining our school system. I had the opportunity to interview our new biology teacher, Mrs. Chapman. I asked her some questions about herself and her family and a couple fun questions.

I asked Mrs. Chapman where she was from, where did she live before coming to Ogallala, how long has she been teaching, what other things has she taught other than biology, as well as some other questions to try to get to know her better. She shared her background with me in order for all of us to better know her and welcome her into our community.

Mrs. Chapman is from Byers, Colorado. She has three kids: Morgan, who runs cross country and track for Kansas Wesleyan College; Max, a senior who plays football, basketball and track; and Jack, a junior who runs cross country and track. Along with her three children, Mrs. Chapman and her husband, Paul, have two corgis, one Aussie mix, and one Jack Russell terrier.

Mrs. Chapman received her undergraduate degree from Kansas State University and received her graduate degree at the University of Colorado, Denver. She is in her twelfth year of teaching and has taught everything from kindergarten to college Psychology, but for the last few years she has taught secondary biology.

I also asked Mrs. Chapman a couple of “fun” questions to get to know her a little better. She says that if she were not a teacher, she would like to be a geneticist, and when I asked her where she could live if it could be anywhere in the world, she told me that she loves where she is at now. What a testament to our community that she feels so at home after only a few short months.

Help us all welcome Mrs. Chapman and her family to OHS.
