I believe all students have strengths, contribute to a community, will be successful.

I am a graduate of Claremont Graduate University (Claremont, CA) with a Masters Degree in Secondary Science Curriculum Design and The Evergreen State College (Olympia, WA) in Biological Sciences. In my youth, I work as a lifeguard, ropes course instructor, and backpacking camp counselor. After College, I worked for a metal manufacturing lab as a lab tech testing the purity of metal samples. I taught two years in PreK at an elementary school in Colorado.  I started teaching high school science in East Los Angeles for Los Angeles Unified School District in 2004 and moved to Capital High School in Olympia Washington 2017.  I teach grades 9th -12th:  general physical science and biology.   I have taught advanced biology, marine biology, physiology, and zoology at multiple levels, including sheltered, full inclusion, and highly gifted magnet.  Lesson topics are driven Next Generation Science Standards which embed Common Core and STEM. My assessments are developed by current IB MYP and DP objectives and I fully make use of the IB criteria to determine student achievement levels.
