Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Douglas Humes
I have been teaching Science for 21 years, all of them in St. Paul. My education includes a degree in Broadfield Science where I studied biology, geology, physics, and chemistry. I also have had the great pleasure of getting a Masters Degree in Montessori Education. The Masters in Education was great, in part, because all of my coursework was with other Parkway teachers. We were all students together. Parkway is the third Saint Paul junior high/middle school that I have had the pleasure to work in. I have taught Life Science (biology), Earth Science (geology) and Physical Science (physics) at Parkway.
Here at Parkway, right next door we have a great opportunity, acres of forested land where students can experience real world scientific research, develop educational projects and community service projects with the help of our community partners and neighbors.
Outside of school I enjoy outdoor activities like swimming, running, yard work, and any other physical exercise. I have two children that are all grown up and have completed their education. One of my daughters has even become a Science Teacher. I also love to travel, go to the gym, read books, see movies, and enjoy getting outside and doing just about anything when the weather is right.
