My Students

My students are very hardworking and they have overcome many triumphs. My students deserve nothing but the best since they always give their all. The love and affection, the respect that my students display, models the character trait of humble individuals. My students always help throughout the school by helping others and keeping the campus clean. Last but not least, my students are very determined. Once they start something, they will ensure they finish with success. I have had students make test scores in the 90s and were disappointed at the results. This shows me not only do I have high expectations of my students, but they also have high expectations for themselves. This pushes them to strive for 100s on tests and do their best.

My Project

There are many surgeons who say that they first discovered their life’s passion standing over a dissected frog in a middle or high school biology class. There are many reasons that students in biology classes are asked to perform dissections, and they have a lot to do with understanding the body and the wider world. In dissecting an animal, students see, touch, and explore the various organs in the body. Seeing these organs and understanding how they work within a single animal allows students to understand how these systems work within many other animals, including themselves. While there are various aspects that may differ between humans and other animals, many of the organ systems in complex animals work in similar ways to those of humans. I express the hope that by learning about their own bodies through dissection, students will come to respect how their bodies work, and think about how they treat them and what they put into them.
