Kim Curtis

Science Teacher

I have both my Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science degrees in Biology. During graduate school I worked as a teaching assistant and really enjoyed teaching undergraduate Biology Labs. For My graduate research I studied the changes in fish species in the tributaries of the Cuyahoga River in Ohio. After graduate school I worked as an aquatic and wetland biologist where I determined water quality based on the fish and invertebrate populations, and determined wetland boundaries based on plant species and soil identification. Because I loved teaching during graduate school, I decided to switch careers after moving to the Boston area. I became a Massachusetts certified teacher and taught High School Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Earth Science on the North Shore of Boston. When my daughter was born I took several years off. I went back to work a few years ago working for a non-profit organization where I brought hands-on science lessons to Boston area elementary and middle schools.

Outside of the workplace I love traveling and being outside all year. I enjoy gardening, biking, walking and the beach during the warmer months. During the Winter I enjoy cross-country skiing, and playing in the snow with my daughter.

What do you feel makes BISB unique ?

BISB has such a collaborative atmosphere. Although I am new here, I already feel as though I am part of a supportive community of teachers and learners. I look forward to meeting the diverse group of students.
