Annie Choy

Hello, my name is Ms. Annie. I teach Biology and Human Body Systems (10th grade course) in the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) pathway. 

Biology is the study of life. It includes an introduction to the scientific method, cytology, plants, ecology, DNA and protein synthesis, genetics, evolution, and physiology. Course work, lab work, and examinations will prepare students for future science courses. Biology course satisfies the district's life science graduation requirement.

Human Body Systems: (10th grade), students examine the interactions of body systems as they explore identity, communication, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis. Students design experiments, investigate the structures and functions of the human body, and complete countless labs. This is a UC approved course that fulfills the A-G subject requirements. It is a "D" laboratory science standard. 

My goal is to reach, teach, and motivate all learners. As an educator I believe it's important to keep learning and continue to modify my approach to find the best ways to relate material to my students. I aim to create instruction that attends to cultural and linguistic and learning differences in the room.

course access

To access course content and assignments students should use Google Classroom. You should have already received an email with an invitation to google classroom. If not, email me ASAP! Students must use their email to enroll. 

Turning in work: Almost all assignments are turned in via Google Classroom unless otherwise noted. This includes taking a picture of your physical assignment and uploading it to Google Classroom. Please note that Classwork must be completed and submitted in class. 

To view attendance, students and parents can access the Infinite Campus Portal. Grades on Infinite Campus are constantly updated. Please make sure you are checking your grades often. Deadlines for turning in late work will be announced based on the grading calendar.
