I Began teaching Health Science at Hereford High School in 2006, (14th year). I have taught every Heath Science Class that is in the Texas Education Agency (TEA), Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum that has been offered at Hereford High School over the past 14 years teaching freshman through senior level classes.
For the 2019-2020 School Year I will be Teaching: Principles of Health Science (Freshman) and Health Science Theory (Sophomores). I enjoy teaching both Freshman and Sophomores.  I will aIso be teaching Seniors the ECG Technician National Certification Cours. I am a stickler for following the rules established in the Student Handbook and the High School policies of our Principal and Vice Principals.
Assignments are DUE ON TIME!  If a student is absent on the day an assignment is due, or a test is taken, Our School Policy gives the student One (1) day to make up that work.  Anything else is considered "Late".  If I receive any late work, assignments that were not turned in for any reason on the day it was due, points will be deducted from the assignments. 
Many of our written assignments will be completed in the student's own spiral notebook or composition book.  Quizzes, Tests and information on assignments may be found on our class Schoology Page.
My Personal Certifications, Licenses and Educational Background:

I have always enjoyed skiing, from an early age, my family and I have alway skied.  As a Medical Professional I have had many opportunities to mix hobbies and being first an EMT-Basic and then as an EMT- Licensed Paramedic.  One of those, with skiing was when from 1997 - 2003 I first volunteered on Ski Patrol at Angel Fire, New Mexico.
Later in 2000 when I became a Paramedic I went from a volunteer to a paid member of the Angel Fire Ski Patrol from 2000 -2003.  One of my favorite pictures is below, riding a snow mobile.  Using a snow mobile in some circumstances was the fastest and most efficient means of getting to an injured or ill skier on the mountain,
