Dear Parents and My Scholars, 

    I hope you and your loved ones are all well and healthy. We have been going through hard times. I can imagine how you may feel unclear and unsure of what to do. Please do not feel alone and you are the only one feeling that way. I will strive to make things as clear as possible. Yet, this is also new for me. So, we will need mutual tolerance and coordination.

Mrs. Miyase Tuncman

Dear MLKJJHS Parents, 

My name is Miyase Tuncman, the 6th-grade science teacher. 

I am grateful to be a part of a "family" as a colleague at MLK and to serve my scholars as their teacher. I received my undergraduate degree in Science Education in Turkey and my master's degree in Environmental Education in Florida. I had a chance to work with the regional community about the invasive Burmese pythons in Miami-Dade County where the local community was encouraged to kill those pythons and got paid when they started to pose threat for other wildlife and humans. I also worked for the United Nations as a researcher. I started my teaching career in Walnut Creek in a non-profit organization as a Natural Science Educator. I had great opportunities to learn about Next Generation Science Standards and develop curriculum for Contra Costa Water District, Water Education Program. Before coming home, MLK, I taught 6th-grade Science and 9th-grade Biology in Walnut Creek. 

My reason to become a teacher has been my love to share and love to teach. I enjoy my job and hopefully, my scholars enjoy it, too.
