Hello! My name is Doug Gilliam, and I'm thrilled to say this is my 3rd year teaching high school Science. I grew up in Southwest Missouri (Springfield and Sparta) and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology (Microbiology/Biotechnology emphasis) degree from Missouri State University University in 2011 and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Molecular Genetics from The University of Missouri-Columbia in 2016. I began my teaching career in the Van-Far School District. I taught a year in this district before moving on to South Callaway High School. This year, I will be teaching 8th Grade Science, Physical Science, Chemistry, Biology and Survey of the History of Life.
Currently, I live in Columbia with my Wife, Barbara, and our two wonderful kids (Rosalind and Michael).
I enjoy exercising, sports, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
I look forward to teaching all of my students some Science this year!!
