My Students

My Biological Science students at WP High School elect to enroll in a rigorous course of study.

Students come from a diverse background, but most have attended WP, a preK-12th grade program, since they were in elementary school.

Many of my students are first generation citizens and want to build a better and brighter future for their families.

My students are enrolled in one of the following courses: AP Biology or Anatomy & Physiology. My students elect to be in these courses and at this school so that they can have the greatest chance of success in their futures.

My Project

It is difficult sometimes to get all the hands-on experiences students need to be successful in science classes due to a shortage of funds for consumable materials that need to be replaced. The greater difficulty for me is that I teach 3 different science courses, all having their own unique needs and equipment.

My amazing Anatomy & Physiology students need opportunities to understand the role of surgery in medicine by practicing suturing skills on both simulated bodies made of yoga mats and through a mock autopsy with a fetal pig to enhance their understanding of bodies.

Initially students will cut through simulated bodies made out of yoga mats and practice using the sutures to stitch cuts in the mat together. Students will then use the forceps and blades to dissect the pig and then find the mass of the organs in the pigs to simulate the process of a forensic autopsy.

Please consider helping students receive their first taste of the medical profession so that I can train the future nurses and physicians of tomorrow.
