Welcome to my Classroom!

Meet the Teacher

Hi! I am Dr. Ingrid Cruz and I teach STEM Integrations 2 & 3. I was born and raised in the Philippines where I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Biology major in Genetics. I earned a Master's Degree in Natural Science from Louisiana State University and my Doctoral degree in Science/Mathematical Education from Southern University. I'm certified to teach Physics, Chemistry & Biology.

My teaching experiences include teaching middle school, high school and college students. I have been in the teaching profession for 18 years.

I am looking forward to a fun, challenging, and exciting school year 2020-2021 and aiming to provide an interesting and challenging learning environment for all my students!


OHMS MESA Team at the IEEE Conference 2020,

Most Global Impact Project Award

1st Place Overall in the Poster Presentation

The MESA team, composed of Michelle Soriano, Sarah Christie, Jose Reyes, Adassa Alvarez, Jazlynne Pichinte, Peter Borda and Ava Larkin, presented their Respiration Sensor Project at the 10th IEEE Integrated STEM Education Conference (ISEC ’20). Despite the frustration in the fact that they were not able to visit Princeton University and attend this conference in person we are so proud that with their continued perseverance and hardwork, these students will be moving on to high school with a published research in their portfolio.

On behalf of the kids, we would like to thank John Hopkins Applied Physics Lab who sponsors the Maryland MESA for extending to us this opportunity.
