Welcome to Mr. Boyles 6th Grade Science Class for 2020-2021
About me: I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho...went to the College of Idaho and then joined the U.S. Navy (Surface Warfare Officer). I retired from the Navy in 1994 and then became a teacher (I went to graduate ed. school at the Univ. of Illinois) I then moved to North Carolina and began teaching in Middle Schools for the Guilford County School System. I have been at Kernodle Middle School since it first opened in 2000 and have been teaching mostly math and science in mostly grades 6 and 7.
I am married to a nurse (Denise) who works at Cone Pediatrics Clinic, I have two (grown up) children: My daughter Audrey, a nurse, works at Duke Univ. Hospital in the ER dept. and my son, Glenn, is a doctor who is completing his residency in ob/gyn at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. So all of my immediate family is in medicine. I have a miniature Dachshund named Mabel and she is 3.
I am pretty good at these three things: chess (I can beat all 6th and 7th graders and most 8th graders), Swimming (I can beat you at a 100 yd.Freestyle...but not Butterfly, Backstroke or Breaststroke), Ping-Pong: I have not lost a match to a single kid in 21 years at Kernodle Middle School....I have a very tricky serve.
I am lousy at all video games: You can probably beat me at any of them.
