Mr. Joshua Sawyer

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

This is my 12th year of teaching and my 10th year at Priceville High. I currently teach Pre AP Biology and Biology.  

I graduated from Hartselle High in 97'.  Since that time, I graduated with a B.S. in Biology with a certification in teaching.  I finished my M.S. in Instructional Leadership in 2016.  At the end of 2018, I completed my Ed.S. in Instructional Leadership.   

During my time at Priceville High I have been a football coach (4 years as the DC), head bowling coach, head soccer coach, head softball coach, head JV volleyball coach, swim team represenative, dragon boat team coach, and robotics represenative.  I am one of our FCA/First Priority huddle coaches.  I also help with testing and Saturday AP trainings throughout the year.      

My wife teaches 4th grade at Priceville Elementary and we have been married for 19 years.  Together we have a 16 year old, Isaac,  that is in the band and on the bowling team, and a 9 year old, Lucas, who is in the 3rd grade.     

  • In my class, we will have as much fun as possible.  I do my best to make my lessons enjoyable.  Throughout the year, each lesson we will take notes, have some kind of visual aid, walk through concepts, complete worksheets, work on ACT skills, play review games, complete group assignments, construct models, and complete numerous labs.  While using technology, students will complete 2-3 presentations throughout the year on various topics.   



  • The best way to reach out to me is through email.  I usually check it several times a day.  I also use SchoolStatus to communicate
