I teach Chemistry at SkyView Academy in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. SkyView Academy is a new classical charter school. The high school began in 2010. I enjoy hiking, biking, skiing and anything active. I graduated from Hillsdale College in Michigan with a bachelor of science in chemistry and a minor in biology. I also received my education endorsement at Hillsdale College and am certified to teach in Michigan and Colorado.

Hi Dorthy, Thank you so much for all the advice. We are a new high school and do not have textbooks yet for either course and will be purchasing them this year. So this added information will be extremely beneficial. Chelsea

Next year I will be teaching two new courses at our school. They will both be semester long courses; anatomy and physiology and environmental science. Does anyone have any suggestions for good textbooks for these courses?

Thanks for all the ideas. I like the one minute paper idea. My students are full of opinions and that would give them a moment to express them. :)
