Hi everyone, my name is Denise and I am going into my 5th year of teaching here at Havelock High School. I am a Registered Nurse for 25 years originally from New Jersey, but I have called North Carolina my home for 6 years. I have broadened my scope of practice by teaching Health Sciences in the Career Technical Education (CTE) Department, alongside a very supportive group of teachers. My hope and expectation for this school year are to reconnect with my students! It has been an unprecedented time in education, and I am looking forward to having all the students in my classroom! Excited to learn along with my students this year!!!!

*Course Descriptions for Fall 2020 Courses*
*Foundations in Healthcare - This is the introduction class in the Health Science pathway, giving the student a broad overview of basic topics in healthcare. It covers such topics as medical terminology, medical math, history and trends in healthcare, types of healthcare systems, such as profit and non profit agencies, communication, and legal and ethical issues just to mention a few.
*Health Science I - This class explores the Anatomy and Physiology of the human body. It covers 11 body systems, their structures and their functions, as well as the common disorders of each system. This class is a lot of material to cover throughout the semester requiring the student to use memorization of the structures and their location (anatomy) as well as how each structure works alone, and how it works with other structures (physiology).
*Health Science II Honors: This class dives deeper into the basic concets covered in Foundations of healthcare. It is an honors class that adds rigor to some concepts learned in Foundations of healthcare. Other concepts covered are infection control, biotechnology, health informatics, and diagnostic and therapeutic services just to mention a few. This course requires some independent work to be done by the student to help fullfill the honors portion of the course. Some activities used for this requirement are: job shadowing, ethical and legal debate, and a health expo.

- Late work policy: This is a Career and Technical Education (CTE) course and it is important to me to instill employable qualities in each student; therefore tardiness should be avoided. In the event, that work will be late, the student will have 3 days to complete the work.
