Mrs. Bottalico

This will be my 7th year teaching and second year at BOHS! Prior to my time at Brea, I taught all levels of Chemistry and Biology at Calabasas High and Redondo Union High. I'm originally from the San Francisco area (Walnut Creek) and went to Cal Poly, SLO to obtain my B.S. in Biochemistry. A few years later, I received my M.Ed. and teaching credential from Pepperdine. After working and living in LA for 5 years, my husband and I decided it was time to move back to Orange County. So, we bought a house, and I'm now working at the school my husband graduated from!

I'm extremely passionate about science and love sharing this with my students. My other passion is dance, and I've been dancing since I was 5 years old. I'm excited to be at a new school and wish everyone a fun, successful school year!
