Michelle Zaragoza is a new teacher at Monterey High. She was inspired to come work here by the science department, where she felt more at home. She also loved the diversity of Monterey High. Ms. Zaragoza grew up in San Bernadino County; she stated she especially liked the malls.

Her favorite subject in high school was show choir, which she was the captain of  as a senior. She would eventually join the Peace Corp. where she realized she wanted to become a teacher.

Ms. Zaragoza enjoys watching our school’s drama productions, soccer games, and football games; she also enjoys hiking, reading, drawing, and scrapbooking. When asked whether she preferred dogs or cats, she responded that she liked dogs more. Ms. Zaragoza also stated that she has cetaphobia, the fear of whales. If she could change one school rule, she said, she would allow Juniors to leave campus during lunch.

Ms. Zaragoza hopes that her students develop awareness about science and about how it is all around them, and if they end up completely hating science, she says she hopes they at least had fun in her class.
