About Mrs Robinson

I grew up in a small town in the middle of Sweden, Europe. I have always been interested in science so I went to the University of Gothenburg to get my Masters of Science degree in Environmental Science. I worked as an Environmental Consultant before we moved to the US in 2005. Eventually I decided to become a teacher and I started teaching at Oak Park Preparatory Academy in Sacramento before I came to Ponderosa High School. This will be my third year teaching science here.

I enjoy working with young people because they are curious, energetic and interested in how things work in the world. I believe in hands-on-learning and a growth mindset where students can grow and be successful.

I live in Folsom and have three children in middle and high school. In my spare time I love to travel and enjoy the outdoors with my family.
