Hello, I am Miss Cruz.
I teach 6th grade science here at Hillview. I have been teaching here for 3 years now. Before that I was a lead tutor at Mt Diablo High School for 5 years.
My background in education is as follows; I have a Bachelor of Arts from UC Berkeley with a major in Molecular and Cell Biology and a minor in US History. I have a teaching credential specializing in science from CSU East Bay. I have experience in both science and teaching. I worked in an immunology lab before and I tutored and led CAHSEE and AP Bio study sessions at Mt Diablo High School. Therefore, I can teach my students science.
I enjoy biology, astronomy, Thai food, burritos, video games, anime, drawing, crafting, and taking long walks. I also love coming up with fun ways for my students to learn science, through activities, labs, and etc.
