BSEd. Biology Teaching, Millersville University of Pa

M.S. Biology / Concentration in Genetics, Millersville University of Pa



Ms. Fogell teaches all levels of biology, genetics, integrated science, and academy science. She coordinates the student-run 4th Grade Environmental Field Days, and oversees the maintenance, student training, and utilization of the science department's scanning electron microscope.


Ms. Fogell believes in being a practicing professional in science to give her students the best and truest experience in her science class. She has an advanced degree in biology, has professionally published & presented research, and often spends her breaks volunteering her collaboration in scientific research so as to best represent the subject to her students.


Her background includes extensive training in ecology and genetics. She most recently was involved in researching the squid(Doryteuthis pealeii) genome at the University of Maine's Darling Marine Center and has done genetic recombination research at Hershey Medical Center and Millersville University. She has presented her research at local (C.P.U.B.) and national (Cellular Molecular Society) level science conferences, and is a co-author of a publication in Genetics & Genomics, which describes her yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) genetics research. She was selected by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) as a Science Ambassador and was sent to Atlanta Georgia to tour their facilities and assist with construction of on-line lesson plans to support their education campaigns.


Mrs. Fogell also teaches part-time in the Biology Department at Millersville University so as to sharpen her science teaching skills and help keep her high school students up to date on what is required of them at the secondary education level. She is also a community representative on Franklin & Marshall College’s Biological Biosafety Committee. She is passionate about quality science and is quick to share her experiences with the students of the Senior High School.
