My Students

My scholars are International Baccalaureate students at an urban high school in Indianapolis. Our curriculum is diverse, rigorous, and global-minded. We strive to provide high-quality education to students from all walks of life.

My classroom is project-based and scholars lead their own learning with guidance and examples from both me and other professionals in the fields of science and humanities.

Fulfilling goals set by them for them help my scholars learn the importance of independence, free-thinking​, risk-taking, communication, open-mindedness, and reflection.

My Project

As part of their study of human anatomy and physiology, we carry out several dissections of anatomical structures such as sheep hearts. The unit culminates with the dissection of fetal pigs, to observe all the structures and systems we have explored in our lessons.

Knowledge from two-dimensional diagrams can be difficult to translate to a real specimen, but this three-dimensional model will serve as a reference to better identify the organs within the fetal pig.

With this model, students can spend less time in frustration of searching for a recognizable feature with which to orient themselves to the systems they know. This model will allow them more meaningful time in discovering the relationships and real-life orientations of organs they have already studied.
