Mr. Gabriel Dalton
Hello students, parents, and Free State supporters!
This will be my third year as a teacher at Free State, and I am excited to once again be interacting with students and families in my home community of Lawrence, KS. I'm originally from Overland Park, KS and attended Olathe East High School. For my first three years of university, I attended Fort Hays State where I was a student athlete (football). Then, I moved to Lawrence, began school at KU, and finished my bachelor's in biology in '01. After dabbling in a few different career field, including a long stint in restaurants an food service, I finally found my passion for educating and offering support to the burgeoning adults in our community. Now I live here in Lawrence on the east side, and I love this beautiful little town of ours. I really enjoy riding my bicycle around Lawrence, consider myself a bit of a foodie, adore all things science (especially biology and space things).
This year, I will be teaching two courses in the Health Science and Biomedicine pathway of our Career and Technical Education (CTE). Those courses are called Pre Med 1 and Pre Med 2. Below this paragraph, there is a brief list of potential topics that will be covered in these courses. CTE courses are designed to provide students with insight into the skillsets required to achieve success in specific career fields. These two courses are designed to help students explore the necessary aptitudes, skills, and training that will be required to seek out any of the myriad careers available in the medical field. Each year, the content changes a bit to follow current medical trends as well as individual student interests. You can expect some fun new topics and activities this year!
In additon to these two CTE courses, I am pleased to also be teaching two sections of Advanced Biology. My formal academic training lies in the biological sciences, and I am more than a little enthused to have the amazig opportunity to teach biology to students once again. Expect me to post more informaiton, including a class calendar, as we near the beginning of the school year.
Topics that will be covered in my Pre Med classes include:
-The History of Medicine
-Health Care Delivery Systems
-Legal and Ethical Issues in Medicine
-Basic Anatomy and Physiology
-Diseases, Diagnoses, and Treatment Techniques
-Current Innovations in Medicine
-BLS/ AED/ and First Aid Certification (pending site approval)
Never hesitate to contact me with any questions, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
