Biographical Information

Robert Wille, a biology teacher at Eagle Point High School in Eagle Point, urges new teachers to: "Love kids more than your subject; you are not here to teach your subject, you are here to teach kids." Mr. Wille, describing his method as "hands-on, heads-up science," is always on the ready to seize the educable moment. He takes every opportunity to introduce his students to major scientists, frequently taking them to attend conferences in Portland. A salmon-raising project he conducts in his classroom allows older students to reach younger ones about the salmon's life cycle and includes an expedition to release the salmon into a local stream. Mr. Wille is also the regional director for the National Science Teachers Association, and he has been active in the Oregon School Reform Act.
