Welcome to Human Body Systems, Chemistry &

Living Environment

I look forward to having a wonderful and productive year! 


PLTW Human Body Systems:
In this Project Lead the Way course, students will examine the interactions of human body systems as they explore identity, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis in the body. Exploring science in action, students will build organs and tissues on a skeletal Maniken®; use data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflex and voluntary action, and respiration; and take on the roles of biomedical professionals to solve real-world medical cases.

Supplies needed- 3” 3-Ring Binder or several sturdy folders, pens & pencils, composition notebook for Learning Log

Regents Chemistry: 
In this course, students are made aware of the technological impact of chemistry as well as the total effect of the application of chemical principles on our lives. Areas of emphasis include atomic structure and chemical bonding, ionization, oxidation-reduction, chemical kinetics, stoichiometry, and organic chemistry. The course consists of two periods of lecture and one period of laboratory in a two day cycle. Students must satisfactorily complete the laboratory requirements for the course in order to be eligible for admission to take the Regents examination. Interactive Course Catalog Video  

Supplies needed- 2" Binder or several sturdy folders, composition notebook for Learning Log, lined paper, pens & pencils

AIS Living Environment: 
This course is intended to help students be successful on the Living Environment Regents exam. Students will take the Regents exam in January and if they pass, they will be able to have a study hall or take a different class in the spring. If students put in the effort and attend class regularly, I know they will be successful!

Supplies needed- Binder or folder to store review materials, pens and pencils

Generally, all assignments and announcements will be posted on Google Classroom. Students can also email me. I'm generally available after school for extra help or to make up assignments most days unless I have a scheduled meeting.  Please see me beforehand to ensure I am available when you would like to stay after!
