Sheriff Lamb visits CHS
On Tuesday, Oct 29th, our Combs High School Criminology and Psychology/Sociology classes welcomed Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb to our campus. Sheriff Lamb discussed his career in law enforcement and shared many intriguing stories with the students.
Sheriff Lamb was brought on campus to further discuss what the students are learning in the classroom. The Criminology class is learning how to use logic, reason, deductive and critical thinking when entering a crime scene to determine what happened and how to pursue those leads. In Psychology, the students are learning about memory, perception, and how the mind of a criminal is "wired".
Sheriff Lamb related certain cases to the students that reinforced what the kids are taught in class. Many students have expressed a desire to enter a law enforcement, forensics, or psychology career. Students held a question and answer session after hearing from Sheriff Lamb with many excellent questions posed to the Sheriff.Lamb is the 24th elected sheriff of Pinal County and has served our community as Sheriff for almost 3 years. He has years of experience with DUI task force, gang suppression and investigating multiple drive-by shootings, drug cases, assault and aggravated assault cases and homicides. Lamb has also worked Federal cases, State cases and Tribal cases.

COMBS HIGH SCHOOL PRESCHOOL EVENT
Did you know? CHS has TWO CTE tracks that are excellent choices for students interested in working with children...Early Childhood Education and Education Professions. Early Childhood Education students study child development with an eye towards working as a preschool teacher, while Education Professions students study with the goal of teaching Elementary, Middle, or High school. Both groups work with children through Ms. Goodrick's daycare program, and both have the opportunity to spend time with students at district elementary schools. You will often see our Early Childhood Education students wandering around campus and the community with their "babies"...computer monitored simulations that students get to name, dress, and take care of. It's a great way for them to understand what it is like to have a baby to care for (including those long sleepless nights).
For both of these programs, passing the test at the end of the second year will earn students PRAXIS Paraprofessional Certification. This certification creates employment possibilities within preschools, daycares, and schools of all levels as a paraprofessional, helping our struggling students and truly making a difference.
