Hello! My name is Jenny Ta and I am currently teaching Biology and TEAM 9 Study Skills/Chirons.  I have also taught AVID, Advisory, CAHSEE Math Prep, Integrated-Coordinated Science (ICS), and Marine Biology in the past.  As you can see, I love science and helping students prepare for college.   

I earned both my B.S. and M.Ed. from UCLA. For my Bachelor of Science degree, I majored in Psychobiology with a Specialization in Computing and minored in Cognitive Science. For my Master of Education degree, I completed the Teacher Education Program.   

I enjoy immersing myself in school activities, but this year, am taking a step back to focus on balancing work and family.  Previously, I was Peer Tutoring Program Coordinator, AVID Coordinator, and was involved with the School Improvement Site Council.  I also earned the Rookie Centaur Award given by the Chiron Honor Society.   

As for my hobbies, I like to read, go bowling, watch movies both at home and in the theaters, attend concerts, volunteer when time allows, and I LOVE to travel.  I love being a new mom and spending quality time with my husband, 10-year-old stepson, and 2-year-old daughter.  

I believe that all students have the potential to be successful.  Hopefully I can provide support and guidance to help students improve throughout the year.  I want students to not only learn biology topics but to also gain skills they can use in their other classes and in the future.

Superhydrophobic Video

Ultra-Ever Dry is a superhydrophobic (water) and oleophobic (hydrocarbons) coating that will repel most water-based and some oil-based liquids. It uses technology to coat an object and create a surface chemistry and texture with patterns of geometric shapes that have "peaks" or "high points". These high points repel water, some oils, wet concrete, and other liquids unlike any other coating.
