Hello! My name is Tamara Savage and I was born, raised, and educated in Toronto, Canada. I completed an Honours Bachelor of Science at the University of Toronto (9T5) by completing a specialist programme in Toxicology and a major programme in Human Biology. I completed my teaching credential at CalPoly Pomona (2002) and my M.A.Ed. in Teacher Leadership at Grand Canyon University (2011). My husband and I live in the San Jacinto Valley with our two kids and I spend a LOT of time mom-taxiing my son to football, basketball and baseball, and my daughter to gymnastics.
I originally moved to LA County for the crime since my personal interest was forensics and I'd completed my senior specialist project in the Office of the Chief Coroner for Ontario. But I got sidetracked into teaching and have been loving it ever since. I have been teaching science in some form or another since the fall of 1998. Courses I have taught over the years include: Integrated Science, Chemistry, Advanced Chemistry, AP Chemistry, IB Chemistry, Anatomy & Physiology, Physics of Exercise, Physics...and one VERY short (or long...) year of 8th grade science.
