Our brains are truly fascinating! It is amazing to think of all the things our brains do in the span of a day. Understanding brain anatomy and functions of each brain region helps us to be mindful of our experiences. This class will focus on neuroanatomy and the neuroscience behind mindfulness. 

This class will have plenty of hands-on activities and class discussions on topics. The instructor will provide instruction and guidance on topics. Students will keep a brain journal throughout class.

Students will:

  • Have an understanding of neuroanatomy
  • Be able to identify brain regions and activities that correlate with each region
  • Understand mirror neurons
  • Identify their emotional brain and triggers along with implement coping strategies
  • Understand how stress affects the brain and implement healthy stress responses
  • Identify differences in long-term and short-term memory
  • Have a deeper understanding of emotional intelligence

NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.

Fun Course

Rated 5 out of 5

This was a fun and interesting course for my daughter. Ms. Getson is a kind and sweet teacher with a homeschooling background which served our family well. Lots of hands-on assignments instead of boring book work. I would highly recommend this course!


Excellent class!

Rated 5 out of 5

Mrs. Geston is an excellent teacher. She gives clear and excellent lectures and fun projects. She is very kind and was understanding of the accommodations we had to make for the class due to our daughter’s special needs. We both learned a lot!


Organized, caring instructor!

Rated 5 out of 5

My 10th grade son announced today that Mrs. Getson’s OTA Biology class has been his favorite class of the school year. Mrs. Getson starts class on time and is always prepared with an engaging PowerPoint presentation; we both sense her commitment to ensuring that the students understand the topics covered. He and I also appreciate Mrs. Getson’s clear expectations regarding homework. Homework assignments include a great mix of textbook reading, vocabulary work, and hands-on activities. My son’s favorite homework assignment this year was creating a detailed, 3D model of a caffeine molecule! We highly recommend this instructor!
