Hi! My name is Ms. Tondi and I am very excited to be teaching here at JM! I am currently teaching 5 periods of 7th grade Life science and 1 period of 6th grade Earth Science. I very much enjoy teaching science and creating a learning community within the classroom. I grew up in NJ and have lived in San Diego and Santa Cruz before moving to Berkeley. I attended UC Santa Cruz where I majored in Marine Biology and minored in STEM Education for my undergrad. I then continued at UCSC for another year and got my teaching credential and Master's in Education, specifically focusing on science education. I enjoy hiking, reading, swimming, and playing card games.
