A Career in Athletic Training
Kim Urmaza has been the Athletic Trainer here at CMCP for seven and a half years. She is seen all over campus and is known as Ms. Kim by the students. On Wednesday, September 22, students in Mr. Lagrange’s First Aid Safety class had the opportunity to hear her speak about her career, walk through emergency situations, and ask her questions. 
Ms. Kim told the class that when she was in high school she never had an athletic trainer and didn’t know much about the profession. Initially she wanted to pursue physical therapy but ended up getting her undergraduate degree in Athletic Training at Nova Southeastern University (NSU). She shared that Athletic Training courses consist of hands-on experience, anatomy classes, and orthopedic evaluations. Athletic trainers learn how to systematically figure out what could be wrong with a patient. Ms. Kim informed students that if they are interested in Athletic Training they should expect six to seven years of school (four years of undergraduate and two to three years working towards a master’s) after graduating high school. Ms. Kim mentioned that athletic trainers have many different skill sets and even though our students see her at work in a school setting, athletic trainers can work in many other places including hospitals and clinics.  
Ms. Kim reminded students that she is a first responder for games and practices. She shared that the scariest situation for any athletic trainer or first responder is when an athlete goes down and doesn’t move. She demonstrated with the students how to respond in those types of situations. Students were also able to learn the steps for emergency response and how to position an injured person onto a spinal board. 
Students asked Ms. Kim questions about what her hours of study were like in college, her strangest experience, what undergraduate degrees to consider, her most disgusting situation, and if they could play a college sport and still pursue athletic training. Ms. Kim said if she could offer just one piece of advice to students it’s this: if continuing education is required in the profession students end up choosing, they should pick classes and conventions to further their learning. Continuing education is important especially in the medical profession when things change on a daily basis.  Ms. Kim told the students that just because you graduate high school doesn't mean you're done learning. She said, “Life is a lifelong process of learning.”

School News

World History Class
Ms. LaMont's World History class did an Archaeological Dig on Monday to end the unit on how to study history and life of early humans.  Using shoe boxes as excavation sites, students identified strat (layers of soil), created a grid and dug for artifacts.  After collecting artifacts for each layer, they recorded them, categorized them and analysed them to attempt to piece together the "story" of the site.
