I’m another California native who grew up in the Bay Area and went to local schools. I’ve had a lifelong sense of curiosity about how the world works, and a very patient mother who let me watch butterflies and moths emerge in jars at the kitchen table. I’ve been called geeky in the nicest way, and have spent over 10 years teaching science in public schools. My B.S. is in Biology from Santa Clara University, my teaching credential is from San Jose State University and most of my teaching techniques were practiced and honed in San Jose schools. I’m looking forward to a great year!
