Biology

This is the page where I'll describe myself in more detail.

I graduated from Chaffey High School in 1989.  I received my Bachelors degree in Biology and a single subject teaching credential in life science.  I also have earned a Masters of Arts degree in Teaching.  I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Educational Studies at Claremont Graduate University, with an emphasis in Teaching and Learning.
 
I have been teaching high school science in the Chaffey Joint Union High School District for eleven years. I have taught Intergrated Science 1 & 2 (freshman and sophmore), in addition to Anatomy and Physiology (juniors and seniors).
 
Currently I am teaching two periods of Integrated Science.  In addition to teaching at Rancho I am also serving as a faculty advisor for Internship Teachers at Claremont Graduate University and am an adjunct instructor at Chaffey Community College.
 

I currently live in Upland, California with my husband David and my two children, Ana-Sophia, 7 years old and Zachary, 13 years old.

What a job!

I might describe my job in a little more detail here. I'll write about what I do, what I like best about it, and even some of the frustrations. (A job with frustrations? Hard to believe, huh?)
