My name is Jessie Hagadorn. I am an educator at Paloma Valley High School.

I am teaching Biology and PLTW Biomedical Innovations for the 2020-2021 school year.
I received my undergraduate degree in Cellular/ Molecular Biology from Humboldt State University and my teaching credential from California State University San Marcos. I love helping students learn more about the natural world and seeing their confidence and curiosity grow!


I am using Canvas as the learning management system for both Biology and PLTW Biomedical Innovations. The link to our Google Meets is posted at the top of the Canvas course. Students should check Canvas for their most up to date and informative grades. If you would like to create an account that pairs with your student to see the full course, please follow the instructions in this link.  


I also use the Remind app with my classes for announcements and as a supplemental form of communication. If you would like to join our Remind groups to receive these notifications, please follow the instructions in the Syllabus.


The Syllabus go over the class procedures and policies for our course.
