About Kristen

I have been a high school science teacher for 28 years in the Long Beach Unified School District. I have taught regular and accelerated Biology, regular and Honors Anatomy/Physiology and Forensic Science.

I enjoy helping students understand the material better and seeing the excitement on their faces when they get it and do better in a class.

I hope to help students not only do better in the class in the short run but I also hope to help students learn how to study by teaching them a variety of study techniques and become more independent.

I am a mother of two boys, 19 and 23, who have attended UCLA and USC.
