Cameron Knigge

I am Mr. Cameron Knigge, and I am a science teacher at Timberlake High School.  I grew up in southern Idaho on a farm. I have always had a passion for animals and the outdoors. In school, I excelled in science, due to my wonderful science teachers. In 2005 I graduated from Filer High School in as the Salutatorian, and then attended the University of Idaho.

While attending the U of I, I majored in biology and was part of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity. My senior year I became Grand Master of the fraternity and also student taught at Filer High School. I received my B.S. in Biology in the winter of 2010. My first teaching job was in St. Maries, Idaho, in the spring of 2011, and was hired at Timberlake in the fall of 2011.

I am also heavily involved with many athletics at THS. I am the varsity baseball coach as of 2017. I also coach the freshmen boy's basketball team, and I am the Quiz Team coach.
