About Mrs. K: My husband, Ken, and I moved to Corvallis 10 years ago from Long Beach, CA. We have two boys who attend Corvallis schools and they are so glad both their parents are teachers, ha!
My hometown is Davis, CA, but I have lived many places all over California. Corvallis reminds me a lot of Davis! I have been teaching for 13 years. I taught high school Biology at all levels as well as courses in Earth, Physical, and Forensic science at Wilson High School in Long Beach and McKay High School in Salem, OR before changing over to middle school and Linus Pauling in 2014. The middle school level has been a great change for me as I love the enthusiasm!
I earned my undergraduate degree in Environmental Biology from Humboldt State University, and my teaching credential and Masters degree in Science Education from Oregon State University. Whenever I can, I enjoy hanging out with my kids, hiking, birdwatching, and spending time at the ocean.
I am looking forward to get you know you and it is a privilege to be your teacher this year!
