Health Mission Statement
written by Cynthia Reid, Health Instructor, 2010 - 2011
The mission of all health classes at Inter-Lakes High School is to provide students with the knowledge and life skills necessary to schieve quantity and quaility of life. This will be accomplished by helping all students become health literate in a safe classroom enviroment. A focus on social and emotional development will naturally occur as this is what young people are most effected by and concernd with throughout high school. In order to accomplish this misson the health teacher will work to develop a positive relationship with all students.
A Little about me
Why did I get into this business to begin with?
I teach because i believe that I can make a difference. I recognize inequity; I empathize with human suffering and have the desire to act on behalf of others and myself. Teaching health does not require a mandated text, curriculum or class, but considers instead the health curricula found in students' lives. In developing connections between students, peers, and families, I help to change lives. When I provide students with the knowledge and life skills necessary to have a quantity and quality of life, I inspire students to seek the same for others in the world. My contributions help bind me together with the common understanding that when i fail, or my school community fails, we all fail. Teaching is my way to contribute to the protection, preservation and restoration of the dimensions of health that connects us all.
