Mr. Joshua Sawyer

This is my 14th year of teaching and my 12th year at Priceville High.  I am so proud to be a Bulldog!  We have an awesome community with a fantastic staff and even better students.  I am blessed to be here at Priceville.  I am proud to be a small part of the Bulldog pack! 

My philosophy in my room is simple.  Love, Live, Laugh, and Learn. 

I am excited about my new role as the Academic Student Interventionist at Priceville High School. 

In the past, I have taught Forensics, Marine Biology, Earth and Space, Life Science, Physical Science, Ecology, and most recently, Pre-AP Biology and Biology.    

During my time at Priceville High I have been a football coach, head bowling coach, head soccer coach, head softball coach, assistant golf coach, head JV volleyball coach, swim team representative, dragon boat team coach, and robotics representative.  I am one of our FCA/First Priority huddle coaches.        

My wife teaches 4th grade at Priceville Elementary and we have been married for 20 years.  Together we have an 18 year old, Isaac,  who is on the student council, tennis team, and bowling team, and a 10 year old, Lucas, who is in 5th grade and plays football. 

I love quotes and these are some of my favorite: "Lazy feet don't eat, do what you gotta do" - Mahkees (Hawaiian singer); "If you scream at the past, you'll trip over the future." - Lionel Richie;  "You will never be defeated by what they say about you, you will be defeated by what you say about yourself." - T.D.
