Last Updated: 8/1/2019 6:19 PM
 Mrs. Agata Blanchard I have been teaching at Raritan High School for eleven years. I graduated from Rowan University with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and have earned my Masters in Health Education from St. Joseph's College. I have been appointed as a Rutgers University Volunteer Adjunct Instructor.  In the past, I have taught Marine Science, Environmental Science, and Principles of Biology. Presently, I am teaching Anatomy and Physiology I & II Honors, Dynamics of Healthcare in Society, Essentials of Anatomy, and Forensics. Anatomy is my passion and I thoroughly enjoy teaching the course. On a more personal note, I spent my childhood in Poland and grew up in Millstone. Currently, I reside in South Jersey with my husband, two young daughters, four pitbulls, and three cats. I enjoy reading, movies, and boxing.

I have been teaching at Raritan High School for seven years. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Biology/Psychology from Lafayette College and my Masters degree in Teaching from Monmouth University. I have been appointed as a Rutgers University Volunteer Adjunct Instructor.  Initially hired as a Biology teacher, I have experience teaching Biology on various levels. I have taught a Biotechnology course in the past and I currently teach Biology to freshmen, Dynamics of Health Care and Medical Terminology. An athlete all my life, I have always had an interest in the human body and health sciences.  In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I can also be found coaching the cross country and track teams throughout the school year and lifeguarding at the beach in the summer. I grew up in Spring Lake, NJ and attended St. Rose High School. I currently reside in Belmar and I spend my free time running, spending time with family and friends and watching Chicago Med.
