My Students

The last thing on most teenagers' minds is their future. They are more worried about their social media accounts or what their plans are for the weekend. My students are preparing for their future by starting as juniors in high school and embarking on a two year journey to becoming a licensed health professional before they graduate!

They are passionate and committed with hopes and dreams of completing their health care certificate program before they graduate.

Most of my students have to plan ahead and take a full load or even summer school to be able to attend EVIT. This kind of commitment inspires me each and every day as their teacher.

My Project

These Chromebooks will give my students the access they need to keep up with cutting edge medical advancements and treatments on the internet. For instance, we will use Chromebooks to research new ways to diagnose and treat diabetes. They will also help students study the chapters in new and interactive ways.

Chromebooks are essential to learning in the medical field as things are always changing and evolving.

Each student will have the opportunity to work independently and exclusively with their own technology. My students will also be able to research disorders that we discuss throughout the year concerning the 11 systems of the human body.
