About Mrs. Santucci
I am excited to start my 18th year of teaching. This is my 4th year at GHS. Previously, I was at Rosa Scott High School and Brandon Middle School. Along with teaching at Germantown High School, I am a professor at Holmes Community College, where I teach Human Anatomy/Physiology.
For my Anatomy students, my goal is for the students is to learn about how the human body functions but also to explore careers that they might be interested in pursuing in the health field. My goal for my Biomedical Intervention students is to teach them critical thinking and collaboration skills as they learn about new technologies and advances in Biological Science.
I earned my Bachelors degree in Secondary Education from Mississippi State University in 2005. In 2007, I continued my studies at Mississippi College to earn a Masters in Biology. During my time at Mississippi College, I completed a shadowing program as a Medical Technologist at Baptist hospital and assisted in research at UMMC. In order to stay in touch with the evolving world of science education, I continue to educate myself through summer trainings and workshops. My most recent training was with Project Lead The Way (PLTW).
My husband and I relocated from Brandon to Madison 11 years ago. I am not originally from MS but I have lived here long enough to call it home. We have a 2 beautiful girls Kylie, 13 years old, and Leyla, 9 years old. My husband is from Leland, MS and works for Burle Engineering as an Environmental Geologist. Yes, science runs in our Family! As a family, we enjoy hunting and traveling.
