Welcome to 8th grade Integrated Science. I graduated from California State University Northridge (CSUN) with a Master's degree in Biology. I then worked in a private allergy practice in Granada Hills for about seven years. At this clinical site, I was in charge of overseeing all the research studies, collecting and uploading all the data provided by our patients, processing all blood/body fluid samples and training doctors/staff for the clinical trials. My last four years have been devoted to interacting with young people who are so passionate about learning science, full of energy, and not afraid of making mistakes as long as they learn from it. I ask of my students one thing - come to science class with a respectful positive mindset as I will do the same thing. Team work makes the workload lighter and joyful.
