My Students

My students attend a small, rural school in eastern Washington State. Total enrollment for our district is about 70 students in grades K-12. In spite of our small size, it is our school’s mission to provide our graduates with the tools they will need to compete with anyone from anywhere.

Cowboys and cowgirls still exist - some of my students live in town but most are farm kids.

And, yes some compete in rodeos: barrel racing, roping, and bronco riding. They are accustomed to long days of hard work, taking care of animals, and tending to crops. I see this grit at school and in the classroom. They know that some day they will have to step into a bigger world and they must be prepared to compete with other graduates from around the world. To do this they need access to knowledge and experiences that will help them to fulfill their goals and dream big.

My Project

In spite of our small size a remarkable number of our students are entering science and technology related fields after graduating high school. Many are entering the health sciences. I like to think that my anatomy and physiology class has contributed to our students' successes. It is one of my students' favorite classes, and former students have reported that it was the class that inspired them to pursue careers in nursing and medicine.

Unfortunately, our anatomical skeleton, Mr. Bones, is beginning to show his age.

He is missing many of his wrist bones, most of his fingers and some of his toes. His jaw is held in place by wire and his shoulders dislocate. A new anatomical skeleton would help my students to continue to pursue their passions in the health sciences.
