Ms. Wood

Hello!!

My name is Becky Wood and I have been the medical careers teacher at Humboldt High School for about 8 years.  I'm originally from Abbotsford, which is very small town in Wisconsin.  The biggest "flex" of that town is that it is Wisconsin's first city...alphabetically-haha!  When I graduated high school, I wanted to be an optometrist.  I went to the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay to pursue that degree, but I quickly found out that I could not afford optometry school since I was paying for college myself.  So, I switched majors and focused on another passion of mine:  cells.  I graduated with a bachelor's degree in Human Biology with a focus on Cytotechnology.  After graduating college, I worked as a cytotechnologist where I screened cells for cancer.  My favorite part of my job as a cytotechnologist was teaching the medical students how to find cancer in cells.  So, I got my masters degree in science education so that I could teach and then this position came up at Humboldt.  This job allows me to join my educational and medical knowledge.  I have built the medical pathway that we have here at Humboldt to include the following courses:  Healthcare Careers, Medical Terminology, Anatomy & Physiology, and Nursing Assistant.  If you're interested in any medical field career, I highly recommend you take a class with me!
