KASEY PROVIDES HANDS-ON EXPERIENCES FOR HER BIOLOGISTS! Kasey teaches biology to 9th and 10th grade students. She has invested a lot of time into carefully planning labs for her students so that they don't miss out on the experiences that engage so many of her young scientists. While at home, her class has analyzed the function of enzymes with the Toothpickase lab, investigated the products and reactants of cellular respiration in yeast using balloons, extracted their own DNA, dissected sheep eyes to understand how studying anatomy helps us determine common ancestry, categorized characteristics of candy to create a cladogram, and explored owl pellets in order to model the flow of energy within an ecosystem. "Lab activities at home sure are interesting. I am having a lot of fun doing these experiments. Labs are very important in class in my opinion. They give us a chance to have a physical example of an experiment and explore how something works while also being fun and entertaining." -Anonymous 9th grade Biologist

ROCIO PREPARES OUR FUTURE CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANTS! Rocio's role this quarter is a CTE instructor. She assists with the students in the CNA program. Specifically, she supports students in a hands-on laboratory to prepare them for the skills they need to pass the state board exams. She looks forward to being a part of this program and preparing students to be successful in their state exam to become Certified Nursing Assistants! A typical day for Rocio includes following the CNA students in their class and collecting paperwork necessary to cover the legalities of the class. HSHMC has two cohorts of students that come to campus during the week for in-person instruction. Students are happy to interact and see each other after almost a year of distance learning. "I am particularly proud of being able to sit-in with students and share conversations about their future aspirations."

MS. WARFIELD DOES WHAT IT TAKES! Kameron continues her role as an Ed. Specialist for 3rd quarter, helping all students in any way that she can. This quarter she looks forward to improving her relationships with our students. Kameron loves being a part of HSHMC because the same support she gives to her students, she receives as a teacher. Kameron spends her day supporting the history classes and meeting with students before and after school to work on their assignments and transition goals. Distance learning has pushed her to get out of her comfort zone and find more creative ways to connect with students.

VANESSA LOVES SUPPORTING STUDENTS IN ALL THEIR CLASSES! Vanessa is very excited to be moving into Quarter 3. While she continues her work with the amazing Academic Recovery/Student Support Team, she will also be assisting Mr. Lauritzen in the Patient Care Career Prep class. On top of that, she gets to spend some time in Ms. Speck’s Anatomy classes. Vanessa appreciates the creativity and adaptability that has arisen while tackling distance learning. "For our students, these are skills they were going to have to learn after high school. In the workforce or in college, many of these distance learning skills are being learned at an early age. I feel that the biggest victories are made by students who overcame daunting challenges."  Some of her proudest moments at HSHMC include the successes of her AR students.
