Hello! My name is Ciara Mansour and I am teaching Biology this year at Culver City High School. This is my first year as a teacher at CCHS, but I was fortunate enough to work here last year while obtaining my Masters Degree from Pepperdine University, Go Waves! I was born and raised in Los Angeles where I have played competitively in over 10 sports and received my bachelors in Biology from CSUN. While there I also had the opportunity to work with Project Grad and Tomorrow's Scientists to help teach grades from 6th to 11th in science related topics. I am looking forward to a great year at CCHS and getting to meet more people in this amazing community!
