About Kristen

I have been a high school science teacher for 25 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, 17 and 21.
