    My name is Jayanthi Purushothaman.  I am a Physical Science teacher at Cesar Chavez high school, Phoenix.  I have been in this school since 2002.  Prior to joining the faculty of the school, I served as a science teacher for about six years at Nogales High School, Nogales.
    During my undergraduate and graduate years, my specialty was Biology.  I gained valuable teaching experience and training, conducting laboratory sessions for undergrads while pursuing a Master’s program in Biology at Adelphi University, Garden City, New York. In my career as a teacher, I have had the fortune to be part of educational systems of two other countries – India and Ethiopia.  

    I enjoy working with students of high schools.  Teaching is fun and rewarding. I have found that one’s teaching ability and sense of purpose are put to the test most in a secondary school setting.  As in Nogales, I have found students here very pleasant to work with and the school atmosphere quite congenial.  I am happy and proud to be a part of the school and the school district.
