Mr. Durand's Science Page

Welcome to my website. I hope you will find this useful for finding resources and being more successful in class.

A little about me - I have been teaching at Rancho Alamitos since 1996 and have taught Biology, AP Biology, AP Environmental Science, Chemistry, and Physical Science, and am a co-founder of FACT, a specialized interdisciplinary program for our advanced and high-achieving freshmen. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Studies from UC Santa Barbara and a Masters Degree in Teaching Science from Cal State Fullerton. Before entering classroom teaching I was an outdoor education instructor for both the Orange County Department of Education Outdoor Schools and Guided Discoveries Astrocamp.

In addition to my teaching responsibilities, I coach the Quiz Bowl team and advise the Ecology club.
