• 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 I am excited to get to teach the wonderful subject of 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 am looking forward to continuing to learn the traditions and character of the Fort Defiance community.  

    I will be monitoring my Canvas course as my main line of communication with students.  You can find the link to the Canvas website on the Fort Home Page, on the right hand side.   Students should be maintaining their routines and completing work regularly on Canvas.

    The pages on this website contain some of the powerpoints and worksheets that have been done in the past that students may use to supplement their other material, but all work for students will be found on the Canvas website.

    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
