Hello and welcome to Cleburne High School! I am looking forward to an exciting new school year, and I am happy to be a part of such a wonderful group of educators and caring community members again this year. I have an additional interest in the education and success of your children, as my only child is attending CHS. I hope to make it a fun and successful year for all!
I teach Principles of Health Science (the fundamentals if your student is thinking about a health care career of any kind, and the precursor to any other medical field courses), Medical Terminology, and Pharmacology at CHS. Medical Terminology and Pharmacology may also be taken as dual credit through Hill College, meaning while your student never leaves my classroom to go to the Hill College campus, they may receive credit for high school and college at the same time. If your child will be taking either of these courses for dual credit, please have them email me (email@example.com
) as soon as possible so that we may get the ball rolling on registration!
My professional background is in teaching and nursing. In order to teach the classes I offer, I must have a valid and current Texas Educator Certificate in Health Science Technology, as well as a minimum of two years experience as a licensed health care professional. I have earned an Associate of Arts degree, followed by a Bachelor's in Psychology. I have taught multiple grades and subjects, as I LOVE to teach and learn new things! I returned to college a few years ago to attend nursing school, as this has always been an interest of mine. I earned an Associate Degree in Nursing and am a licensed and practicing Registered Nurse (RN). I have nursing experience in Labor & Delivery, Postpartum/Nursery, Home Health, Medical/Surgical, first aid nursing at church camp each summer, and rehabilitation (spinal cord and brain injury, orthopedic injuries such as broken hips, legs, and more). I believe we should never stop learning and helping one another. My favorite quote emphasizes this and is by Ralph Waldo Emerson: "make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you."
I will do whatever I can to help make your child successful in learning and preparing for a health career (or another career if they change courses). If you or your child have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call 817-202-1200 (during school hours). I make my cell phone number available to my students/parents once the school year has gotten under way.
