Hello! I am Shawn Josey, biology teacher, and I have been working at Foard for over 20 years now. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 1994. Go Mountaineers! I majored in Biology with a concentration in Education and minored in Chemistry and Geology. I feel that biology is one of the greatest subjects on the planet. It has been a passion of mine to expose students to all the wonders that biology has to explore while working here at Foard.

While teaching at Foard, I have been involved in many activities. I started the Men's soccer program in the mid to late 90's but retired from coaching in 2007-2008 so that I could watch my kids play. I have also coached tennis and worked with the volleyball program in the past. I have also worked as a mentor for other teachers as well as student teachers, have been a member of the BLT, and am still the current science department chair. I also coach our science olympiad team and have done so for roughly the past 10 years or so.
