Bio
I have been a high school biology teacher for 8 years. I have taught 9th grade biology and IB Biology (SL and HL), and also have experience teaching writing (this year I teach AVID, an enrichment class that has writing as one of its curriculum areas).

I have a BS in Biology from Mary Washington University, and a Masters in Education from George Mason University. I am also in the process of getting my doctorate from George Mason University, although I am taking this year off.

I am originally from Chile, and have lived in the U.S. for the past 20 years. I am fluent in english and spanish, and I can write both languages professionally.
