Kristen Tucker


My name is Ms. Tucker and I have been teaching science at Capuchino HS since 1993. I have a BA in Environmental Science from Swarthmore College and received my teaching credential from SFSU.  I love teaching science at Capuchino because the students and the staff are very friendly and motivated.  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 at my house as my husband is a native Spanish speaker from El Salvador and my children were raised speaking both languages.  I grew up here in the Bay Area and my parents are still in my childhood home on the Peninsula.   My hobbies are reading, cooking, and playing soccer.  I started playing soccer when I was young and I am still playing on two women’s teams.
