Ms. Little and Mr. Reveal’s 7th grade students had a very special visitor in class yesterday, Dr. Evelio Rodriquez. Dr. Rodriquez, parent to an Ensworth 7th grade student, is also currently Director of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Cardiac Surgery and Director of Arrhythmia Surgery at Saint Thomas Heart Hospital. First, Dr. Rodriquez conducted a short lesson on the anatomy of the heart and how it functions. When he was done, the students split up into groups and took turns examining a pig heart and an elk heart and identifying the different components they had just learned about. Thanks to Dr. Rodriguez for an extremely interesting and special visit!
