Hi there! My name is Elise Bostic and I teach Biology and Environmental Science. I began teaching high school science in 2008 in Phoenix, Arizona after graduating from Arizona State University with a degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Biological Sciences. In 2011, I earned my master’s degree from the University of Arizona in Teaching and Teacher Education. I have also taught education courses at the University of Arizona and Online Astrobiology for Teachers at Montana State University. In 2017, I began teaching at a pathway school in Denver, Colorado before moving to Chula Vista in 2020 to work at High Tech High Chula Vista. I have been following the work on HTH for years and feel grateful for the opportunity to work at a fully project-based school.Facilitating high school science is my passion. I love working with students and exposing them to the wonders of life science at such an important time in their lives. I truly believe all students can learn and grow as scientists. I have learned so much from my former students (and colleagues) and carry their stories, successes, and struggles into my daily practice as an educator. When I am not teaching I enjoy reading, being outdoors, and spending time with my husband, Wyatt and our son Gabriel. We love to travel, cook, hang out with our families in Arizona and California, and relax with our friends.
