Anatomy Physiology

Our Anatomy Physiology students started off this week with a dissection.  Ms. Gomez wanted students to participate in a hands on lab to get them familiar with the various systems of the body.  The Anatomy Physiology students were hard at work and it was great to see them dissecting so early in the school year.  Ms. Gomez has so many more exciting labs planned for the class, this is only the beginning!

New textbooks coming our way!

There is nothing like opening up a brand-new book!  Last year I updated 7th grade Math, 8th grade Math, 7th grade American History, and 8th grade Government curriculum.  This year I have updated 7th grade Life Science, 7th grade Earth Science, High School Spanish I and II, and High School Anatomy Physiology curriculum.  My goal is to provide the best possible resources for our students and teachers and updating curriculum plays a key role in this process.
