Course Overview: Welcome to Health Education! My vision for this program is to help each student gain the knowledge to make informed decisions and to be the healthiest version of themselves. It is my goal to create a safe and healthy learning environment where students feel comfortable to discuss health topics that are linked to the NYS Health Education Standards. 

    NYS requires that all students be taught the following skills: 

    • Self-Management 
    • Relationship Management
    • Stress Management 
    • Communication 
    • Planning and Goal Setting 
    • Decision Making 
    • Advocacy

    • Violence & Injury Prevention 
    • Abstinence, Puberty & Personal Health
    • HIV/AIDS and other STDs
    • Tobacco, Alcohol, & Other Drugs

    *These units will be split between 7th & 8th grade
