Hi! My name is Samantha Bean and I teach Biology and AVID elective here at Leuzinger High School. This is my first year at Leuzinger and I'm very excited to be here. I recently relocated here from Florida where I taught middle school science. I graduated from the University of Florida and I'm a huge Gator fan. (You'll see lots of orange and blue in my room!) I love California though. I spend a lot of time outdoors enjoying our beautiful weather, riding my bike, hiking with my dog Pepper and spending time at the beach. I love science, especially biology, and I'm looking forward to a great year with all of you!
