My Students

As a strong STEM believer, I try to give my students ample opportunities with chances to explore new careers in the science and medical fields.

Many of my students talk extensively about pursuing a position in the medical field.

Feeling extremely proud in hopes that I had somewhat of an impact on that decision, I want to make sure that all of my students get that same desire to help shape their community. What better way to do that then to actually run many of the same tests that are performed in a doctors office. Recently in my classes, we have discussed the pathway of blood through the heart, the heart structures, and heart abnormalities. I

I must be able to help my students lead them on to a career path, but first I must expose them to all of the possibilities. This experience will get my classes one step closer into fueling their passions for medical professions.

My Project

The students in my classroom have a strong desire to learn about the human body. One month into the school year and my students are already wanting more opportunities to learn. We are inviting guest speakers and trying to work with local hospitals to find a way to observe their practices.

These students want to take learning into their own hands and find out what it means to be a real surgeon.

Having the students work with a sheep heart dissection will help the students learn the anatomical parts of the heart, the pathway of blood through the heart, and help to provide diagnostic tools for heart conditions. We will also be using a blood pressure cuff as a diagnostic tool and a potential lab experiment.
