Ms. Katrina McGrady

Welcome to science! My name is Katrina McGrady and I teach biology, honors biology, AP biology, anatomy & physiology, and physical science at B.B. Comer High! While I have used my Master's degree in secondary science education to teach for the last 15 years, many people do not know that teaching is my second career. I graduated from UAB with a bachelor of science degree in biology/chemistry in 2000 and radiation therapy in 2002. I worked in radiation oncology for years and I use my background in patient care to try to find real-world connections for students in my class. I am very passionate about teaching science to our students to prepare them for college and life after high school! I believe that science literacy is the key to opening doors to amazing STEM careers for our students.
