   About Forensic Science:
Forensic Science is a laboratory-based science class designed for students who are interested in forensic science. The purpose of this class is for students to gain experience in the major investigative techniques currently used by forensic scientists and crime scene investigators, and to develop an understanding of the scientific concepts which serve as the basis for these techniques.
Forensic Science A and B cover the following topics:

 

  Forensic Science A  Forensic Science B
  • The Crime Scene
  • Physical Evidence
  • Death Investigation
  • Glass Analysis
  • Drugs
  • Forensic Toxicology
  • Fingerprints
  • Careers in Forensics
  • The Microscope
  • Forensic Serology
  • DNA
  • Crime Scene Reconstruction
  • Blood Pattern Analysis
  • Trace Evidence (Hair & Fiber)
  • Document Examination
  • Computer & Mobile Device Forensics

 About Honors Anatomy & Physiology:
Students in A&P will study a variety of topics, including the structure and function of the human body and the interactions of body systems for maintaining homeostasis. This course will create a foundation for future health science careers.

About the Teacher:

   SchoolCenter Picture

As a graduate of Trinity High School, it is an honor to be teaching in the school district where I attended school from 1st grade through high school. I hold a BS and MS from Texas A&M University. I began teaching in HEBISD at KEYS High School during the 2006-2007 school year. I have taught various science classes, health, and speech. This is my second year at the Buinger CTE Academy.  


Besides teaching science, I enjoy vacationing to Colorado and hiking through Rocky Mountain National Park, eating at restaurants, going to movies, and being a mom to my two sweet kids.

Each school year brings new challenges and successes...If you need to contact me, please fill out a contact form by clicking, "Contact Mrs. Puckett."
