Mr. Durand's Science Page

A little about me - I have been teaching at Rancho Alamitos since 1996 and currently teach AP Environmental Science, FACT Biology, and zero period Chemistry. In the past I have also taught  AP Biology and Physical Science. I am one of the co-founders 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 ScienceSchools and Guided Discoveries Astrocamp.
Links to syllabuses for the courses I teach can be found to the right.

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