I am a Marine Biologist that teaches Biology for 9th and 10th grade. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology and a Master of Science in Biology, both from California State University Long Beach (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0058985
). I am also the Head Coach for Girls Soccer. I am a passionate scientist that aims to install a sense of inquiry and discovery in my students. I love to play soccer, 32 years and still counting. I also love to travel and learn life lessons from other cultures and acquire new points of view from the countries and continents that I have been fortunate to travel to. Therefore, "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. -Abraham Lincoln-"
