This will be my 12th year of teaching! I graduated from University of California, Davis with a degree in Biochemistry. Prior to getting my teaching credential, I worked as a Quality Control Analyst in the Biotechnology Field for 4 years . I am so happy that I made the switch into education and now, I get to combine my love of science with teaching at Hampton! My favorite thing about teaching is seeing that moment when a student "gets it" and goes "Ooooh...okay". :) I also love it when kiddos ask questions about something...it's just the best.
