Colton Youd and CJ Haynie, seventh grade students in Mr.Hatfield's science enrichment class, had a great time during worm dissection.

Mr.Shawn Hatfield, science and biology teacher at, has taught at SJHS for 20 years. Mr.Hatfield teaches everything from cells to biology and plants to worm dissection.

According to Cooper Halladay, eighth grader at SJHS, cutting open a worm is harder than most people would think. Mr.Hatfield’s first period science enrichment class had the gross opportunity to dissect worms on April 26, 2012. CJ Haynie, seventh grader at SJHS, said, “Worms are more complex than I thought.” 

Mr.Hatfield’s class looked at worm brains, intestines, hearts, and gullets. Dephany Rays, eighth grader at SJHS, said, “The insides are super, super disgusting.” Bailey Bird, eighth grader at SJHS, said, “In Mr.Hatfield’s class we learned all about the different body parts and the correct way to open earthworms.”
