Subjects Taught


I am a graduate of Purdue University and hold a B.S. in Wildlife Science.  I obtained my teaching certification from Valparaiso University.


I have been a teacher at Wheeler High School since the 2002-2003 school year.  I previously taught at River Forest Junior High School and East Chicago High School.  Prior to entering the education field, I worked as a Field Biologist for 3/D Environmental Services in Cincinnati and as a Biology Technician for the National Biological Service at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.


Hello!  Welcome to Mr. Lyons’ school web page.  I am glad you made it and I hope you will find my information and resources helpful to parents and student alike.  I teach Biology and Integrated Chemistry/Physics classes at Wheeler High School.  I am highly committed to driving my students to achieve all they can, and I work tirelessly to help “Every student, every day.”

In my free time, in addition to a second job at the Valparaiso Family YMCA, I enjoy hunting, fishing, and running in addition to competing in softball and volleyball at the local rec leagues.  I am married and have two children.
