Denise Wingfield has been teaching forever...just kidding!  Suffice it to say she has been teaching for a good while and can't think of anything she'd rather be doing.  She holds both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in biology from James Madison University---GO DUKES! She currently teaches Advanced Placement Biology and Independent Science Research.  She has been a Virginia Governor's School for Medicine and Science commended teacher, a CIA commended science teacher, the Loudoun County Gifted Education Teacher of the Year and a Washington Post Agnes Meyer Loudoun County teacher of the year finalist.
    Previously, Ms. Wingfield has worked as a technical writer and a biologist for the National Park Service.  Her primary biological interests are conservation biology and population dynamics.  When not teaching, she likes to research her Native American heritage and spends most of her time outside.  Playing in the snow in shorts is a big plus.  She lives on the side of a mountain in a really cool house with 4 insane cats, 1 Catahoula Leopard dog, a rat and an outdoor menagerie of deer, racoons, bears and owls.
