Science & STEM: Jr. High

I am looking forward to another fun and rewarding school year.  My goal is to create a classroom where the students are independent learners, gathering their own insight and wisdom.  Though it may be challenging, science labs and reports are one of the most utilized learning experiences in my classroom.  Group work and collaboration is another key component students will learn in science class.    

Hopefully the students are as excited to learn about various topics in life science, physical science, and Earth science.  Some examples include, adaptations of life, Earth's weather and climate, forces and motion, the periodic table, and much much more! 

A little about me and my background.

Science, particularly chemistry, has been a passion of mine since high school and I hope to instill this passion in my students!  Learning is an ongoing process that will never be complete.  This world has so many new things constantly being discovered, and we should not take this lightly.  

‚ÄčI grew up in Orange County, California and moved to San Diego to obtain my Bachelors in Chemistry at the University of San Diego.  I graduated in 2015 and the following year I went to UCSD to obtain my M.S. in Chemistry.  In 2016 I received my Masters, the first person in my family to do so!  Recently, I received a single subject credential in Chemistry that I obtained from USD, along with a Master in Education.
