Degrees and Certifications:

Brook Connell

I started my teaching career in 2014 and I have been teaching science at Capuchino since 2018. I have taught chemistry, AP chemistry, biology and IB biology but I am currently teaching chemistry. I earned my BS in cell and molecular biology with a minor in chemistry, teaching credential and MA in secondary education all from San Francisco State University. I have previously worked for summer lab programs at SLAC, Stanford and the Exploratorium and am an alumni of the Exploratorium Teacher Institute. I enjoy making connections with students while allowing them to explore and make sense of the world around them using science. Outside of school I am married, have a son, a dog and two cats; they all keep me very busy. I also enjoy sports, outdoor activities, shopping, cooking and spending time with family and friends.
