Dr. Leon Neiman

 

I have taught courses in the biological curriculum  for over 40 years.  I taught biology electives at Oley Valley School District, Human Anatomy and Physiology at Reading Area Community College and Kutztown University. Currently my  responsibilities are teaching some biology courses at the main campus and teaching Human Anatomy and  Physiology at the Reading Hospital School of Health Sciences for Alvernia University.

My avocation is agriculture.  I operate a small farm growing grain and hay. Previously my family and I milked cows as a small dairy farm along with my teaching.

My research interest and pedagogical interest are very similar.  I am trying to develop techniques that would improve the processing of information from short-term to long term memory in the classroom setting.   Previous research dealt with small fish feeding behavior determining whether the feeding was opportunistic or selective.

Current professional associations:

  • American Biology Teachers Association
