                                          Room 810

The human body is a very complex system. Just take a moment to think of all the functions
            your body performs for you every day…Wow! In this class we will begin
an in-depth examination of the structures and functions that allow the human body to “tick.”
   Using this intimate relationship between anatomy and physiology we can begin to dissect
 (literally!) the amazing biological processes that allow us to dream, to kick a soccer ball, to
 breathe, to digest a pizza, and to sense the world around us. This course will help prepare
 students who are exploring a career in the health professions, as well as students who just
 want to learn more about the human body. Lab activities, including dissection, will be part
                                          of this course.

                                                                 TCHS Guidelines for Success

missed work. I am also available to stay after school every Thursday, as well as various
other days before and after school. See the clipboard in the front of my room to sign up
for before or after school help.
        DO use Infinite Campus to check your progress in the class. If you are concerned
about your grade and would like to schedule a meeting time with me, please sign up on the
clipboard in the front of the class and write that you are needing to discuss your grade
progress. I will also provide you with detailed progress reports several times throughout
the semester.
