Ms. Kristie Holliday-Johnson
Thank you for visiting my web page. Many of you already know me as Ms. HoJo from my years of teaching Pre-AP Biology and AP Environmental Science. I am a proud Charger and alumna of UTSA, go Runners! I am also the mother of two wonderful children and grandmother of three precocious grandkids: Zoie, Levi, and Noah. To all of my new charger families, I look forward to getting to know you and your student. I am super excited about starting my thirteenth year at Churchill! This year I'm beginning a new venture into Forensics. My goal is to make it both interesting and fun. I will be communicating with parents and guardians through the message center in Skyward. Parents, please make sure your contact information is up to date.
Note: I will be using Google Classroom and Zoom for daily lessons, reminders, and unit materials. Students are required to access Google Classroom through the district's Launchpad for attendance purposes. If Launchpad is down, students can access Google Classroom by following the directions linked here https://bit.ly/2PZwsmz

What Is Forensic Science?
Forensic Science is a course that uses a structured and scientific approach to the investigation of crimes of assault, abuse and neglect, domestic violence, accidental death, homicide, and the psychology of criminal behavior. Students will learn terminology and investigative procedures related to crime scene, questioning, interviewing, criminal behavior characteristics, truth detection, and scientific procedures used to solve crimes. Using scientific methods, students will collect and analyze evidence through case studies and simulated crime scenes such as fingerprint analysis, ballistics, and blood spatter analysis. Students will learn the history, legal aspects, and career options for forensic science.
