|Why TSAS?||It was my first and top choice! I absolutely love the unique diversity of the staff and students. The TSAS mission reflects what I believe education should create within our community- life long learners. By encouraging students to approach problem solving creatively, respect individual values and actively engage I feel our school promotes a holistic approach to education and learning. I am so proud to be part of the TSAS family!|
|Interesting Fact||I married my best friend, Clay Brewer, in October 2017. We have a small farm that includes donkeys, goats and chickens. I expect our herd to grow once we move onto our recently purchased 10 acres! I love to cook and create for others. I was a horticulturist at the Tulsa Zoo prior to teaching at TSAS.|
Upper level, yearlong course that builds upon foundations of Biology 1 by exploring content to greater depth and wider extent of cellular processes, biochemistry, technology and population ecology. Emphasis on analysis, writing and mathematical applications.
Biology is a laboratory science course in which students investigate a wide range of topics including cells, cell transport and reproduction, genetics, DNA, evolution, and ecology. Students will have an opportunity to participate in various laboratory activities and dissections throughout the course.
This course is designed to introduce and explore plant science, soil science and landscape design. Students will become familiarized with plant identification, structures and functions and learn various methods of plant propagation. Instruction will largely consist of hands-on activities, labs and development of our school garden.
This course is an in-depth look at biology on the cellular level with an emphasis on microorganisms and biotechnology applications. Topics include microbial cell structure and function, microbial genetics, and the role of microorganisms in disease, immunity and their impact on the environment. Students will become familiar with a wide range of laboratory procedures and analysis.
