About Me~

This fall begins my 13th year in education! Eleven of those years, I have been lucky enough to call myself a Frenship Tiger. I have worn many hats since coming to Frenship, including a coaching cap! I was involved heavily with the tennis program for eight years as an assistant coach for four years, and the head tennis coach for the last four. I decided to leave the coaching world to become a full-time teacher, after becoming a mother in 2015. I have taught many life science subjects, including biology and forensics. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions concerning the course or your students progress in my class. I'm excited about this new chapter in my career, and always proud to be a Frenship Tiger

 

Forensics? Yes, please!

This will be my fourth year to teach Forensics at the HS level. In an effort to grow our CTE Career Cluster, we will be working with Law Enforcement I and II to help make cross curricular connections in both fields of study. It's going to be an awesome year!

 

Wait... What is Forensics?

 

Forensic Science is a course that uses a structured and scientific approach to the investigation of crimes of assault, abuse and neglect, domestic violence, accidental death, homicide, and the psychology of criminal behavior. Students will learn terminology and investigative procedures related to crime scene; questioning, interviewing, evidence collection, crime scene sketching, and scientific procedures used to solve crimes. Students will also study modern day laboratory techniques of analyzing data; such as DNA electrophoresis, and blood typing. Using scientific methods, students will collect and analyze evidence through case studies and simulated crime scenes such as fingerprint analysis, ballistics, and blood spatter analysis. Students will learn the history, legal aspects, and career options for forensic science.
