My Students

My students love exciting science projects that are hands-on, so I always try to bring them these experiences. My students are also extremely interested in going into medical fields. Many are juniors and seniors who are taking both Anatomy and Physiology and AP Biology simultaneously. Their learning is truly most effective when they can do hands-on projects that allow them to apply the concepts they have learned in class.

My students are from diverse backgrounds around the East Bay of the California Bay Area.

They are also from mostly low socio-economic backgrounds. Some students are first or second generation Americans and some will be the first in their families to go to and complete college. The experiences they gain in Anatomy and Physiology could help shape their future scholastic and career goals!

My Project

Currently, we are working with college level Anatomy and Physiology texts that are challenging to read, go far beyond the scope of our high school course and are bulky. This project will give my students access to a readable textbook with great diagrams.

My students will be able to use these books to grow as readers, to grow as learners, and to grow as scientists.

They will gain a deeper appreciation for the human body with access to appropriate texts and diagrams that can enrich their experience of Anatomy and Physiology. This class set of books will last for years and give hundreds of students the ability to read about their own bodies' structures and functions.
