About Mrs. Santucci
I am excited about my 19th year of teaching and 5th year at GHS. Previously, I was at Rosa Scott High School and Brandon Middle School. Along with teaching at GHS, I am a professor at Holmes Community College, where I teach Human Anatomy/Physiology. For my Anatomy students, my goal is for the students 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 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 workshops. My most recent training was with Project Lead The Way (PLTW).
My husband and I relocated from Brandon to Madison 12 years ago. I am not originally from MS but I have lived here long enough to call it home. We have 2 beautiful girls; Kylie, who is a freshman at GHS, and Leyla, a 5th grader at MUES. My husband is a partner and lead Environmental Geologist with W.L. Burle Engineering. As a family, we enjoy hunting and traveling.
