Welcome to my page! I am excited that your child will be in my class this year which means they have expressed an interest (I hope) in the field of healthcare. I am a Registered Nurse and have been in nursing for over 24 years. When I was in high school I had absolutely no interest in anything health related until my senior year of high school when I realized that I wanted to become a nurse. My parents were shocked and a little unsure of if I could handle it, but I proved them wrong and I am so glad that I chose this profession! I am now teaching Health Science Theory and Patient Care Technician to your high school student in hopes of bringing more knowledge and understanding of the different fields in healthcare. My goal is to inspire your student to follow their passion...even if it ends up not being in the healthcare industry.
One of the things I want all of my students to take away from my class is that Mrs. Wiskur cares about them. I love these high school kids and man they make me laugh! It has been a great experience working with teens.
I grew up in Garland, graduated from Lakeview Centennial which is were I met my husband. We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this past March and were fortunate to be able to go on a trip just before the lockdown happened! I have two girls, one is a Senior here at Wylie High and the other is a Senior at Texas Tech! GUNS UP! My oldest is interested in physical therapy and my youngest is interested in nursing.
I graduated this past May with a Masters Degree in Nursing Administration from the University of Texas at Arlington. I figured I have another 20+ years of work ahead of me so it's not too late to continue my eduation. The great thing about nursing is that there are so many options to choose from. I'm a little biased but try to keep it to a minimum. :-)
