Learning Never Ends!

I need resources to help me become a better educator.

My Students

My Students are freshmen and sophomores who dream of one-day becoming health care professionals to serve those in need. When asked why they want to become a healthcare professional the most common response is, "I want to help others." Our Biomedical Science course is designed to give our students the opportunity to explore a variety of medical fields through the lens of case studies. These case studies are patients for whom they must keep a medical record as they navigate the possibilities of why they may be ill.

Our community is a border town where the majority of the community is of low socioeconomic status.

Many of our students are first-generation college-bound students. They dream of pursuing careers in the healthcare fields to help others so we begin that now in our small community. My students become involved in community projects to bring healthcare awareness to our community throughout the year. They work hard and compete in HOSA Future Health Professionals and have represented the state of Arizona at the International Conference for the past 5 years.

My Project

Education is a never-ending process, as I near 10 years as a public educator, I am aware that there is always more to learn. I want to be a better teacher to my students and to do so I must prepare myself. Currently, I have 37 students in my HOSA Chapter competing in various areas of study. As I attempt to help each one of them I find I need the resources to learn about the competition myself first.

The resource books I am requesting will help me prepare myself so that I may be a better educator for my students.

Roberts Rules of Order is the full text from which I will train our two Parliamentary Procedure teams. The Great Debate will provide me the understanding of debate structure to train our three Biomedical Debate teams. Many of the topics are in areas in which I have not been trained and need these resources to help my students succeed.
