Welcome to Introduction to Healthcare Science


January 5, 2022

Teacher: Mrs. LaQuida Godbee   

Welcome to Burke County High School – Healthcare Science Class!

I am so excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and I’m looking forward to a successful and productive school year. My name is LaQuida Godbee and I am married to Ellis Godbee, Jr. and we have four children. This is my 7th year of teaching, but my second year at Burke County High School. I taught 5 years at A.R. Johnson Health Science and Engineering Magnet School in their Health Science department teaching Introduction to Healthcare Science and a career pathway and I Love It!

I am a graduate of Southern Illinois University at Carbondale with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Care Management and Valdosta State University with my Master of Education Degree and a Certified Medical Administrative Assistance (CMAA).

The standard curriculum areas and purpose for this class: Introduction to Healthcare Science class will cover the basics of healthcare, safety procedures, healthcare careers, employability & communication skills and infection control (more detailed in the syllabus).

Students are asked to bring the following supplies to school: A 3- ring notebook with paper, dividers, pencils, pens, erasers, 2-highlighters, and optional: 1 box of tissue☺.

My classwork policy is that classwork will be completed in class. Most work will not (usually) be sent home. This helps keep down work being lost, misplaced, and dishonesty (cheating).
