Welcome to Biology and Human Anatomy and Physiology! I'm Ms. Smith, and I'm excited to be teaching another year in El Camino. A little about myself: I grew up in San Jose, then moved up to Chico to get my degree in Biology. After college, I student taught in a high school before moving on to get my teaching credential. I've taught at both high schools and middle schools, and have a special interest in the medical field, something I am happy to pass on to my students.
This is my sixth year at El Camino HS--COLT PRIDE! I love going to new places, meeting new people, and learning new things. Art and writing are hobbies of mine. And remember: only boring people are bored!
My goal this school year: more frequent and formal CFU's, or Checking for Understanding. CFU's are typically a series of 1-4 questions asked after a class period that see where students stand in their learning, and where ideas might need review.
I hope to have an excellent year and if you have any questions/concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and my extension is 6146.
