About Muriel


Bio

I have been a teacher for over 40 years. I began as a high school teacher of science, history and English in East Africa, then went on to teach science (particularly genetics) at UCLA and UCSD. After retirement from UCSD and moving to the Olympic Peninsula I have continued to teach, now lecturing on gardening and ecology topics. Throughout my teaching career I have been a popular teacher, often described as "tough but fair" and "funny" and "able to make the complex simple."
