Janell Webb is fascinated by the interconnectedness of life and loves the details of science from the molecular to the environmental. She is passionate about showing her students that even small changes at one level can have big consequences at another!
Janell has an Associate’s degree in Animal Health, a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and a Master of Arts degree in Public Health. She also has 20 hours of graduate-level coursework towards a Master of Science in Biology. Janell is a life-long learner who has been teaching for 16 years, ten of those years in an international Christian school in Indonesia. Teaching science in a tropical rainforest was an experience beyond her wildest dreams, and she loved taking her students outside to investigate the flora and fauna of the area! Janell holds an Indiana teaching license in Health Education and Biology but has had the opportunity to teach students in many subjects at many levels.
Janell and her husband currently live in Oak Park, California with their big, lovable dog, Emma. The three of them spend as much time outdoors as possible, enjoying the Santa Monica mountains and the Pacific Ocean. She and her husband enjoy playing nerdy science games (like Pandemic, Photosynthesis, and Cytosis) or watching movies that are based on true stories when they must stay indoors.
Science is all about asking questions and making observations. Learning science should involve seeing, handling, and manipulating materials. This is what I loved about science as a student, and it is also why I love teaching science now. Labs and hands-on activities...
This is my daughter's favorite class this semester (Integrated Physics and Chemistry)!
Mrs. Webb was always a joy and very easy to communicate with!
My kid LOVES this class. It is his favorite class by far (Biomedical Science)
