Mrs. Debbie Pope - Practicum in Health Science & Medical Terminology
2018-2019 will be my third year at Little Elm High School and I am looking forward to working with the Practicum in Health Science students and the Medical Terminology students.
I went from working as an Administrative Assistant in the Life Insurance field to Nursing in 1999. I received my Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) in 1999 from El Centro College in Dallas, Texas then in 2005 I received my Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) from Texas Woman's University and now I have just completed my Masters in Workforce Learning and Performance from University of North Texas with emphasis on Career and Technical Education this August. I am continuing my studies in nursing by taking Nursing Health Informatic courses this coming Fall and Spring semesters online through the Uninversity of Texas at Tyler then in the summer of 2019 I hope to be joining thier PhD program in Nursing Philospy. I think I have an issue with going to college :)
My Nursing career has taken me to work in Labor & Delivery, Antepartum (high risk pregnancies), Postpartum, Middle School Nursing and Nursing Case Management. The part about nursing that I have enjoyed the most is teaching others whether it was a new nurse, patients or kids at the middle school. This desire to teach has lead me to my second career of teaching and I am looking forward to many years of helping others understand the opportunities the Heath Care industry has to offer.
I also have a wonderful husband of 15 years and two great boys (one in 5th grade and one in 7th) at home, who are my world. There are also 3 four legged kiddos at home - 2 labs and 1 chiweenie - they think they rule the house.
