I am an Animal Scientist who graduated from NC State in 2010 with a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science Pre-Vet. When I completed schooling, I left with a minor and additional concentrations: Agriculture Business Management, Equine Anatomy and Physiology of the Performance Horse. I completed additional coursework in Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and individual classes at U.C. Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine distance education in Equine Industry, Exercise Physiology, and Equine Welfare and Management. 

I have worked at N.C. State University (who also has a veterinary science doctorate program) in the undergraduate university in both Anatomy and Physiology as well as Equine Science classes teaching as a Teaching Assistant. 

I worked in veterinary medicine and animal science including various clinics and farms for 20 years.

I am ready and prepared for this course.
None.
Custom-made handouts will be provided to learners weekly.
None although parents are encouraged to email teacher at any time.
3 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Everything related to class is appropriate and vet/anatomy related. I do not teach the reproductive system in this class. However, we do learn the difference between stallion and gelding (the ability to have foals) and that may mean we discuss what a castration is (I typically tell students this means the male horse cannot have babies like a neutered dog). I only use correct anatomical words and do not go into detail about the system.
None.
