Jessica Lin

Ms. Lin majored in Psychobiology at UCLA, and worked in labs that looked at cognition and brain development. As an undergraduate, she noticed how many of her classmates gave up on their dreams of becoming doctors, engineers, etc. because they struggled with science classes due to a weak science background. Because of this, Ms. Lin grew a longing to invest into future students to help them discover their passions and reach their fullest potential. She teaches Chemistry and Environmental Studies here at Cleveland, and considers The Land her second home. She regularly partners with CSUN’s Science Learning Collaboratory and UCLA’s Nanoscience Institute to integrate the most recent science research into the classroom. She also currently teaches through UC Irvine’s Science Project, where she helps teachers address racial, social, and environmental injustices by positioning educators as agents of change for community action.
