• Monson_OBTA This year, 2020-2021, is my 14th year at West Linn High School, and my 28th year teaching
    overall!  And what a year it will be - I know that the current world situation is stressful - please know we are all in this together and I am excited to meet you all and work with you!  I am thrilled this year to be teaching Advanced Placement Biology, and Chemistry.   
    A little background about me:  I completed my undergraduate work in Biology at UC Santa Barbara (GO Gauchos!).  I then earned my teaching credentials and Masters Degree in Education from Stanford University. (GO Cardinal!)
    I was honored in 2010 to be recognized as the Outstanding Biology Teacher Award recipient for the state of Oregon.  Over the past several years, I was selected to participate in a national AP Biology Leadership Forum, sponsored by the National Association of Biology Teachers and BSCS (Biological Sciences Curriculum Study).  
    In addition to teaching and doing science, I love playing music (piano), attending and/or doing theatre, reading, teaching fitness classes, and spending time with my family & friends.
