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 Aberdeen High School, Grays Harbor College, and Washington State University (Go Cougs!), earning my teaching certification and I look forward to a long teaching career at AHS. 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 101 and Business Procedures and I am also a co-advisor for Outdoor School.
I am available Monday to Thursday from 7 to 4; email is the best way to contact me, email@example.com.
Please make sure you are enrolled in Google Classroom. This will be our primary method of learning until further notice.
