Hi my name is Ms. Boomgaard and this is my first year at Florence High School but my 10th year of teaching Biology. I have also taught human anatomy and physiology, Biology, AP Biology and AVID. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Education/Biology from Ottawa University and my Master’s in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I currently teach Environmental Biology and Biology. I also teach Biology for Chandler-Gilbert Community College as an adjunct instructor in the evenings. I enjoy spending time with my family, my dog, biking, hiking and kayaking outside of school.
