Meet the new MoleCOOL Science Teachers

Replacing the legendary Eichers is a daunting task. We set out to see if the new Biology and Chemistry teachers were up to the challenge.

First we caught up with Ms. Snelgrove, the Honors Biology and AP Biology teacher.

Where are you from and where did you go to college?

I am originally from Aiken, South Carolina. I went to undergraduate school at Wofford College, and got my graduate degree from the University of South Carolina.

What is your favorite Magnet memory so far?

On my first day we were doing statistical analysis in AP Biology. It look like such a beautiful day out so we decided to take the lab outside. However, the lab involved gummy bears, and very quickly the gummy bears all melted, creating a huge mess. The students spent the class cleaning up gooey candy from the grass.

Is water Wet?

Yes, water is wet due to its cohesion properties. (I think she is very wrong).

What tips do you have for students in your class now?

Most importantly, have fun, but also be sure to pay attention.

What is your spirit animal?

Marty the zebra from Madagascar.  


After chatting with Ms. Snelgrove, we headed upstairs to Mr. McGill’s room where he teaches AP and Honors Chemistry.

Where are you from and where did you go to college?

I’m originally from Marion, South Carolina, a town near Florence, and I went to University of Iowa for my undergraduate and University of Illinois for graduate school.

Where did you teach and what classes did you teach before coming to Magnet?

Before coming to Magnet, I taught at Timmonsville High School in Florence, South Carolina, and I taught several science classes- AP and Honors Chemistry, Physics, Biology.

Do you have any tips for students in your classes?

Students in my class should be prepared to have fun and pay attention.

What is your spirit animal?

I think my spirit animal is an owl because I tend to stay up late at night.

If you could time travel where would you go?

The 1920s.

What is your favorite pie flavor?

Probably blueberry, I love blueberries and grow them as well.

And now, for the million dollar question, is water wet?

Yes, water is wet.

We hope you’ve learned something new from our interviews with Mr. McGill and Ms. Snelgrove. They seem like great teachers and we’re glad to have them at the Magnet Community!
