Welcome to Criminal Justice, the newest CTE offering from the Twin Harbors Skill Center. This class will explore many different aspects of criminal justice including types and elements of crime, the law, morals/ethics, fingerprinting, the origins of DNA and forensic science, the workings of the legal system, the prison system, juvenile justice, and career skills. We will also learn from mock trials, guest speakers, and field trips. Any missed work or class notes can be found on the classroom calendar link at the left.
A little about myself.....I graduated from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) with my teaching certification and I look forward to this exciting endeavor. Some of my personal areas of interest in regards to criminal justice include social and racial inequality, hate crimes, and the Supreme Court.
This year I will also be teaching Freshman Advisory, Freshman AVID, Business Procedures, and Intro to Personal Law.
It's gong to be an exciting ride, let's get started!
