Meet Miss Post
Hello! I am a Colorado native who graduated with a degree in International Affairs from CU Boulder. I studied abroad in Senegal (West Africa) and enjoy traveling, hiking, and being outdoors. Before coming to Standley Lake, I worked with refugees in the Denver Metro area and taught for two years at an Expeditionary School in the Mapleton School District. This will be my sixth year at SLHS. I coach the Freshmen volleyball team and in July 2020 I finished my Master's Degree in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education at Regis University.

Course Description and Syllabus
Course Description: Psychology touches every aspect of our lives. As we work, play, study, and simply interact every day, we are experiencing countless psychological phenomena. In this course, we will explore how our brains and bodies react to information and situations- sometimes in predictable (but often in unpredictable) ways. This course helps students understand that they are not alone, whether they face learning difficulties, body issues, depression, or loneliness. It gives students a window into why they may be experiencing these things, what to do when these issues become serious, and how they can either work their way through them or reach out for help. Students can see a whole body of science, information, theories, and modes of treatment to address their concerns about themselves and possibly those around them. Studying psychology helps students become more effective in their most important and basic role in the world- relating to others and understanding themselves.
Multicultural Perspectives Elective
Course Description & Syllabus
Course Description: In Multicultural Perspectives, we explore key components of a culture, such as knowledge, language, customs, values, norms, and objects. We also examine key concepts like social mobility, meritocracy, and privilege. Students explore how culture and gender shape their identities and how to communicate effectively with people who have different cultural backgrounds- something essential for living and working in a multicultural globalized society.
