Hi Everyone,

I earned my degree from Brigham Young University in Utah.  This is my 34th year in the district.  I started teaching Science when we had a Junior High school in 1986, I worked there for over 2 years.  I transferred to Perris High School and taught, Life Science, Biology, and Health.  I was the Club Advisor for Key Club for 25 years.  I was the Co-advisor for Friday Night Live for 5 years and and was the teacher for ASB for 1 year.  I later transferred to the Academy for 1 year and taught Independent study and continued teaching it at Scholar + for 3 more years.

Course Overview 

deals with the study of all types of living organisms, such as microorganisms, plants, animals, and humans. The field focuses on their organization and life processes. Life Science A begins with the basic unit of life—the cell. You’ll discover how cells build up tissues, organs, and systems. You will study the growth and development processes of different organisms and see how genes are responsible for the traits of organisms. You’ll also explore natural selection and artificial selection and their effects on the genetic traits of organisms.
