Dr. Soto gives girls a thumbs up!
Dr. Soto gives girls a thumbs up!
 

Local Rockport-Fulton eye physician Dr. Nichole Soto led class discussions and dissections of preserved cattle eyes at Fulton 4-5 Learning Center on Friday, May 19, 2017.    Dr. Soto purchased the preserved cow eyes for all 5th grade students at FLC to observe and dissect during their regular science lab times.    

 

Students were first led through a discussion of basic eye anatomy using models previously purchased with grant funding from the Texas Medical Association.    Dr. Soto learned of the students' study of the eye and volunteered to purchase the preserved eyes and then lead dissection lessons with 5th grade students during their regular science lab times.    This is the 3rd year in a row she has helped out the science dept at FLC by purchasing the eyes and volunteering a full day at the school.     Her office assistant, Dorothy Barringer,  joined her throughout the day aiding students in their understanding of how the eye works and the functions of the parts of the eye.   Former FLC student and current TAMU student Grant Robbins joined Dr. Soto as part of her team assisting students all day long. 

 

Many thanks goes out to Dr. Soto and her staff for helping our students to understand how our eyes create  images and for sharing what the profession of being an eye doctor is like.   Many of our students are now considering careers in the medical field.    We love and appreciate you Dr. Soto for your devotion to the students of FLC!!!
