Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kristen Durkee
I am excited to join the Oakmont Vikings team for the 2018-2019 school year. I started teaching chemistry in 2012 in South Los Angeles and earned my teaching credential from Loyola Marymount University that same year. Since then, I have taught Chemistry, AP Chemistry, IB Chemistry, and Biology in the Bay Area and Elk Grove. I earned my bachelor of science in Biology from UC San Diego in 2005 and my juris doctor from UCLA in 2010. When I am not in the science classroom I enjoy playing outside with my family, running, reading, doing yoga, playing soccer, traveling, and snowboarding.
In Chemistry and Biology class this year students will be utilizing google classroom. Assignments and resources will be posted there daily.
