This year I am excited to be teaching two sections of IB Sports Exercise and Health Science (SEHS) as well as three sections of Human Body Systems (HBS) and one section of Biomedical Innovations (BI). The first two 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 and writing research papers. This course moves quickly and requiers students to work/study outside of classtime. HBS, on the other hand will focus on how the body deals with identity, communication, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis. The final class I teach, BI, is a senior level course based on completing an independent project and includes a job shadow opportunity. I will be working to incorporate a project based approach in all my classes. In addition to these classes I will be facilitating an online Medical Terminology class where students can earn 3 credits from Missoula College.
The Health Science Academy is an exciting opportunity at Big Sky. I feel fortunate to be involved in the Academy while teaching the HBS and BI courses. The Academy is focused on providing every student the core curriculum through the lense of the Health Sciences. Academy classes will involve students actively in different fields of the Health Sciences through hands-on laboratory based activities, field trips, guest speakers, job shadows and independent research.

On a personal note, I like to hike, bike, swim, and spend time outside with my family. I 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.
