• Welcome to Fort Defiance High School!


    My name is Josh Bollinger, and I am the one and only Chemistry teacher at FDHS.  This is my fourth year at Fort, and am excited to get to teach about Chemistry!  I graduated from Bridgewater College, majoring in Chemistry with a minor in Biology, as well as obtaining my teaching license with Bridgewater's Teacher Education Program.  

    I am excited to share my knowledge and love of science with every student who walks through my door.  Currently the only chemistry course offered is Chemistry 1, with hopes to develop an upper level Chemistry course in the near future.

    I will be changing and adapting this website to provide some tools and resources for students.  I hope to upload my PowerPoints of notes to this site for students to use in case of absence, or clarification.  I am looking forward to continuing to learn the traditions and character of the Fort Defiance community.  Students should mostly use the Canvas class site to access notes and worksheets if needed.

    I am always open to hearing from students and parents, so if you need to contact me, email me at bollinger.jd@augusta.k12.va.us
