This is my 2nd year at Umoja and my 7th year as a science teacher. I grew up in the Sacramento area and attended Galt High School. After that, I attended UC Riverside where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences. After teaching preschool for 2 years, I decided that I wanted to teach science to older students and then went on to get my master’s degree in Science Education. I love all things science but some of my favorite fields are botany and entomology.
