about the teacher


Garrett League obtained his doctorate in biology from Vanderbilt in 2017. After that, he conducted postdoctoral research at Cornell, where he helped teach and/or design a number of courses. His research focuses on disease carrying insects (primarily mosquitoes) and how understanding their biology and behavior can be used to prevent the spread of illness. He has been a member of numerous professional scientific societies, including Sigma Xi, the American Society of Parasitologists, the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, and the Entomological Society of America.

Garrett also earned degrees in biology from Baylor, where he studied visual development in an insect model system (the fruit fly), and TCU, where he minored in art and art history.

In addition to science and art, Garrett has a lifelong love for the Bible and an admiration for Renaissance men, like Johannes Kepler, whose deep faith and broad expertise seamlessly bridged the sciences and humanities.

He recently helped start a small home church as well as an online ministry called League of Believers, where he addresses the most important issues impacting the American Church and its public witness.

Born and raised in Southern California, he and his wife now homeschool their three …
