    1. 1. + Flipping the classroom with Connect Michele Monlux Anatomy/ Physiology Modesto Junior College monluxm@mjc.edu
    2. 2. + Presenter: Michele Monlux I teach anatomy, physiology and human biology at Modesto Junior College in the Central Valley of CA. Most of my students are hoping to get into the nursing program or some other allied health program. My undergraduate degree is in biochemistry and my graduate work was in exercise physiology. Both degrees are from University of California at Berkeley. Go BEARs! I have been teaching for 25 years and still enjoy it although I am growing tired of correcting labs and lab practicums. I have a wonderful husband and 2 fun sons, a Navy diver and a college student. I live on a few acres with dogs, minidonkeys, horses, llamas and cows in a little town, Oakdale, which has more cows than people. I love sailing, especially in the San Francisco Bay, knitting, tennis doubles, and hiking anywhere but especially Yosemite National Park, a short drive from my house.
