When you think of anatomy, you probably think of cutting open frogs and learning how their liver works. This is probably true for most anatomy classes, but not Ms. Parmann’s anatomy Class. “At the end of the year, we dissected an actual baby pig and some people did cats” says Darrien Davis, a senior that took the class last year. In this class, you leave the frogs behind and focus on the human body and the bodies of animals.
Darrien is interested in a medical career. He encourages not only students interested in medicine, but all students to take this class. “If they have the chance to,” he said, “definitely take it.” Anatomy is an important subject even if you don’t want to become a doctor or nurse. You have a body, you should know how it works.
You will also enjoy this class. Along with learning about anatomy, you will constantly be interested. “It ended up being a really fun class” he explained. “It’s really interactive and you do a lot of cool stuff.”
If you want a future in medicine, or if you just want to learn more about the body and how it functions, think about taking anatomy. Don’t spend your time trudging through the swamp for a frog. Learn something interesting.
