Class Experience

I have worked in women’s health since 1999. I provided nursing care in OBGYN clinics and labor and delivery units of hospitals while serving in the Navy. Later, I designed and implemented a women’s health course for refugee women. As a school social worker, I provided classroom based programming for teen mothers as well as individual counseling. I went on to provide home based therapy for pregnant women and new mothers with depression for the University of Texas. Finally, I was a labor and delivery social worker at a hospital that delivered over 1200 babies each year.  I have 4 children of my own, including 3 teenagers. I will handle this education with the same care that I have with each of my own children. 
I recommend that students have a copy of The Care and Keeping of You 1 by the American Girl company as a companion to this course. The book is not required, but reading pages will assigned weekly for students who have it. The journal that accompanies the book would also make a nice addition to this course. 
I recommend that students have a copy of The Care and Keeping of You 1 by the American Girl company (ISBN: 978-1-60958-083-4). The journal that accompanies the book would also be helpful.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This is a puberty class, so we'll be looking at diagrams of developing female bodies (breasts and pubic area) and learning the correct names and functions of these parts. It is impossible to adequately discuss periods without some discussion of reproduction. The female reproductive system will be discussed in a developmentally appropriate manner, without an overt discussion of sex.
