What our students are saying ...
“I was Mrs. Caulfield’s teacher assistant, and I also took her Sports Medicine 1 and Medical Terminology classes. Mrs. Caulfield’s classes consisted of hands-on activities, such as performing injury tests on our classmates, that helped me understand concepts better. She is a great teacher who has a creative yet very informative way of teaching, which helped me succeed in her classes. For example, in my Medical Terminology class, Mrs. Caulfield had a very organized system of ensuring that we were prepared for the exam that consisted of diagrams, vocabulary quizzes and review guides. I would definitely suggest Mrs. Caulfield’s classes to anyone looking to have a future in physical therapy, sports therapy and much more.”
“Honestly, as I learned more and more about the body, and athletic training, I was genuinely interested. We usually don’t learn through a book; we do tactile hands-on things in class and apply what we learn. I found the dozens of functions and responsibilities your body has kept me more interested than I ever thought I would be in school."
