This year I am excited to be teaching one section of IB Sports Exercise and Health Science (SEHS), as well as four sections of Human Body Systems (HBS) . The classes, HBS and SEHS, focus on studying the human body using an applied systems-based approach. While the upper level, SEHS course covers 5 body systems in-depth, students will quickly apply what they learn while conducting labs, hands-on activities and writing research papers. This course moves quickly and requires students to work/study outside of class time. HBS, on the other hand, will focus on how the body deals with identity, communication, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis. This course will build many body systems on a Maniken model. I will be working to incorporate a project-based approach into all my classes.
I feel fortunate to be involved in the Big Sky Health Science Academy (HSA). The HSA is an exciting opportunity for any student at Big Sky, you do not need to be focused on a future in health care to participate. We simply want to provide students a smaller learning community that includes an applied and connected learning experience. The Academy is focused on providing every student with the core curriculum through the lens of the Health Sciences. Academy classes will involve students actively engaging in different fields of the Health Sciences through hands-on laboratory-based activities, field trips, guest speakers, job shadows, and independent research. HBS is the sophomore level of the four-year HSA sequence.
On a personal note, I like to hike, bike, swim, and spend time outside with my family. I have two daughters currently in college and an active and supportive husband who I can share my adventures with. I always look forward to getting students more involved in independent research as well as many of the community opportunities Missoula has to offer. I have taught science at Big Sky High School since 2005.
