My name is Billy Buckley. I am a graduate student in the Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences Program. I am participating in the distance learning course for my master’s degree. I am a 7th grade science teacher in Myrtle Beach, SC. I lead my school’s Environmental club where my students participate annually in the local BioBlitz, in annual beach and marsh sweeps, and work to make our coastal area less polluted from waterway restaurants and tourist debris. My original undergrad degree was Marine bio and I am happy to have found my way back into the field. I want to pursue summer research opportunities on the local flora and fauna and plan to be a part of the Teacher at Sea summer program hosted by NOAA.
