classroom welcome 

A little bit about myself! 

I attended Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana for three years before receiving my Bachelor of Science-Teaching in Biology at Minnesota State University- Mankato. (No, Coach did not coach football there!) I also was part of the athletic training program there.  I have a Master of Education in Exercise Physiology from THE University of Texas.  This is my fifteenth year as a teacher/athletic trainer at Holmes and considerably more than that in education all together. 


Human Anatomy/Physiology

This course is geared for the pre health care professional and will cover the identification and homeostatis of the different systems of the human body.  It will include lectures, group work, and exams.

I enjoy reading biographies and history outside of  my professional reading for athletic training and education.  Some of the books that I have read recently are:  Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and Amazing Grace and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery. Currently, I am reading Walden by Thoreau and The Cost of Discipleship by Bonhoeffer.  I also enjoy John Grisham and Jeffrey Deaver (The Lincoln Rhyme series).  Growing up I enjoyed the Landmark Series of books (biographies).

Ask me about other books I have enjoyed.
