Can you imagine how frustrating it is to struggle to learn a complex subject without any idea of what it looks like? Anatomy is a subject that is difficult to conceptualize without having an example to refer to.
My Anatomy and Physiology students attend a high poverty school that has limited resources and monies available.
They are juniors or seniors who have identified their career path to be in the health science field. Some have set goals to be lab technicians while others strive for their doctorates. All of them want to learn and are interested in the structure and function of the human body. We have an enormous amount of fun learning and utilizing the limited resources we have.
Future nurses, health care professionals, and doctors will be inspired to pursue their dreams by having hands on experience with preserved specimen dissections. Dissection tool kits, virtual dissection tutorials, and basic specimens of sheep eyes, hearts, and brains will create a curiosity of the structure and function of the human body that will last a lifetime.
Science is a difficult and intimidating subject to many teenagers.
My goal is to remove these obstacles by providing lessons that motivate my students to learn and strive for a college degree. Hands on activities and labs are the pathway to see my students excel not only in science, but also in their life.
