Mrs. Tammy Nechita


Welcome to my classroom website. Below is a bit about me.

I graduated as a Civil Engineer from Texas A&M and worked in construction and mining for 15 years. I have been teaching for 14 years.   I have a Masters in Business as well as one in Education.  I am married and we have two great, nearly grown up kids.  I like suspense novels, solving puzzles and designing solutions to problems.  I can be found building things, working on home improvement projects and traveling/exploring.  I enjoy science because it is a gateway to understanding the world we live in and can enhance the pursuit of any career including those in the Arts and Humanities.  I want  students to understand that a science education can enhance what ever field they enter.  I am also an advocate for living in concert with our natural environment, and preserving and proctecting our Earth and its occupants.  Pursuing justice for people and the Earth are intertwined, which is why teaching Forensic Science and AP Environmental Science are both so enjoyable to me.
