Westfield High School

Natasha Sherman » Home


I come from an extensive biology background. I have experience teaching biology at the university level at schools across the country. In addition I have experience working as an active scientist in areas from genetics to ecology to organismal biology, including connecting these fields with one another.
I am excited to join the team here at Westfield High School and am teaching Biology 1-1, Biology 1-2, and AP Environmental Science.
