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.
