My name is Kara Breuer. I graduated with a degree in chemistry from the University of Portland. Upon graduation, I went to work as a Volatile Organic Chemist for the Army Corps of Engineers.  I decided I absolutely loved teaching when I started as an adjunct chemistry instructor for the University of Portland. I went back to school for a Masters in Teaching and began to teach math, science, and biomedical courses at Ridgefield High School. This is my 12th year at the high school and I am in my 20th year at the University of Portland. My new hobby is archaeology in Pollentia, Spain.
