    My name is Alejandrina Mejia.  I am a Science Teacher at Alhambra High School.  I am currently teaching Environmental Science, and I am sponsor of the Students for a Sustainable Planet.  The club meets every Thursday to pick-up the recyclable materials within the whole school.  Before the pick-up, the club has a short meeting to discuss the plans for the educational and recretional activities.  Every year the club visit the Phoenix Recycling Plant and Metal Recycling Plant, so that the students can learn how the materials are processed at each site.  In addition, we visit the Wastewater Treatment, so that the students understant the important of reusing water at the desert.  We also do community services around the Alhambra community.  

    I have a bachelor's degree in Biology from the University Autonomous of Santo Domingo at the Dominican Republic.  I also have a master's degree in Biology from the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus in Puerto Rico.  I taught Biology for two years at the University of Puerto Rico, Cayey campus.  I also taught a summer of Botany at the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico.  I taught different Science classes at Carl Hayden for 15 years and I was the sponsor of the Blue Planet Society (a sustainability club) for around 13 years.

    In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with my daughter, hiking and dancing.
