Anatomy and Physiology-This will be one of your most relevant and rigorous courses -we will explore all 11 Human Body systems and I will not only engage you, but integrate all your body activities, structures, functions and disease processes into this year! This will prepare you for college coursework and/or a career in Arts and Sciences, Health and Medicine, or anyone who is interested in knowing how their body works.. WELCOME to my class...

***Anatomy is the branch of science of that deals with the structure of the body and 
***Physiology deals with the functions of these structures.

 Major Class/School Rules...
1. You must be in your assigned seat by the bell or you will be marked tardy...entering the room at the bell or after is considered tardy-DO NOT stay and talk with teachers placing you tardy for my class..
2. There will be no talking without permission or sidebar conversations with students
3. No cell phones are ever allowed in my class at any times, unless specified for an emergency...Referrals will be written if phones go off or they are seen on a test. They will be placed in the class cell phone holder and withholding results in discipline.
4. Safety is paramount...Dissections and activities predispose students to accidents and  horseplay, or not adhering to directions results in loss of lab privileges.
5. Grades will not be discussed in e-mails and ALL grades are earned...non-negotiable.
6. You must raise your hand to ask a question-never to shout in the room as this disturbs other students requiring quiet environments.
7. You are never allowed to leave your seat without permission-to throw something away, etc...it is disrespectful and non-conducive to other students learning.
8. Any work not completed as instructed, or absenteeism will result in a zero-students are accountable to work per teacher's timeline...
9. Any student defiance, offensive gestures, or disrespect towards a sub, teacher, or student will result in immediate discipline referral and is non-negotiable.
10. Dress codes will be adhered to per school policy...
11. Cheating will result in automatic zero on assessment and referral-this includes wandering eyes, talking, and/or using cell phones or notes...
12. No eating or drinking without professional courtesy: only capped bottles, closed containers, etc...If I reward you, respect the privilege...
13. Disrespect, bullying, or defiance in my classroom will not be tolerated...All students
must earn respect and treat others as young adults in this learning environment.
14. All students are accountable for class preparation as quizzes may be given daily without warning...the webpage is MANDATORY for success with textbook as backup.


No E-mails REGARDING GRADES will be responded to per county policy.
Any e-mail after 5:00 p.m. will be responded to within 48 hours...
***Questions are to be asked in class or arrange for tutoring by appointment only: Every morning 6:45-7:00 A.M. and after school certain days-you must notify me and may not just 'drop-by' to hang out...Tutoring is for test remediation, questions, or help in general...
