Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Lori Brookins
I will be embarking on a new adventure and challenge as I teach STEM and Career Action Labs in the Exploratory Department.
I have been teaching science at Hillcrest since 2003 and before that I taught two years of high school biology. Previously I had a career as a Senior Research Technologist for eight years that involved cancer research of the respiratory system. I am certified to teach grades 7-12 Biology and General Science.
I was nominated and awarded DVEA Teacher of the Year in 2008. I have high expectations and work diligently to prepare students for the rigors of high school courses. I enjoy making connections through analogies of science content to real world applications. I enjoy relating both funny and serious stories that assist students to remember the material.
