My name is Jesse Wade Robinson. I grew up in San Diego, and moved
to Santa Cruz, California for college. At UCSC, I completed
a degree in Molecular Cellular Developmental Biology.
After college and traveling extensively in South America, I returned to San Diego, where I reside
There I earned my teaching credential
from San Diego State University and began teaching and learning at High Tech High (HTH). I have enjoyed
teaching at HTH for the past ten years. I currently teach biology and supervise students on internship at HTH.
I love teaching and learning and feel like I have found my calling. I am passionate about science, education, and creating positive change in our communities. In the past few years I have spent much of my free time exploring these passions. I completed my MA in Education at UCSD in 2008. I have traveled to different parts of the United States and abroad to teach educators about Project Based Learning.
This year I will be teaching part time, so I can spend more time with my new son, Cove. I am grateful to be co-teaching with Mackenzie Shultz, an amazing teacher and evolution enthusiast. Our project for the fall semester will be working with the exhibit designers at the Reuben H Fleet Science Center to make inquiry based science museum exhibits with my students.
In my spare time I like to swim, run, read, and spend time with my family.
