Degrees and Certifications:

Kristen Tucker


My name is Ms. Tucker and I have been teaching science at Capuchino HS since 1993.  I grew up here in the Bay Area and earned a BA in Environmental Science from Swarthmore College in 1990.   After graduation I returned to the Bay Area and completed the teaching credential program at SFSU.  I love teaching science at Capuchino because the school community feels like family.  When I am not at Capuchino I am at home in San Francisco with my two children and husband.  We all speak Spanish and English as my husband is a native Spanish speaker from El Salvador and my children were raised speaking both languages.  My hobbies are reading, cooking, and gardening.  I played and coached soccer for over 40 years but have now retired.
