My Students

I teach 11th grade biology and environmental science in a public project based learning (PBL) high school. My scientists tackle real world problems with their curiosity, innovation, and integration of current science and technology in our classroom and in the community. Our classroom reflects the rich and diverse culture of the San Diego region from all socioeconomic backgrounds. All of our students at our school benefit from a full inclusion IEP education to access a university level STEAM curriculum.

Our school believes that 100% of students deserve an opportunity to continue in higher education after graduation and excel in their gifts and talents.

My student scientists use STEAM as a way to explore their interests, investigate their ideas, and design new solutions. My students use their varying backgrounds, languages, and experiences to work together to create an inclusive, forward-thinking team that utilizes biochemistry, molecular biology, anatomy and physiology to design and conduct projects. These experiences bring my scientists together in a positive, rigorous learning environment while also preparing them for future STEAM majors and careers.

My Project

Ecology is an important topic students will be learning in biology. Each student will be assigned an endangered species of their choice. They will be researching male and female characteristics, the environment they live in, genetic variation, and the reasons of why they are endangered and what can be done to save them. Students will be able to understand the importance of a species and the role it places in its environment. Species can rely on each other for survival and if a species does go extinct then many animals and plants must adapt and/or evolve due to the change.

By creating a mosaic tile of their endangered species, students will be able to show and inform the public about their species.

Each student will present a poster alongside their tile and discuss the importance of conserving an endangered species. Students will be working with 9th graders to create a wind turbine and solar power structure. These tiles will also be welded onto the structure that will remain on the school campus as a charging station.
