Neena Kumar has a Master of Science in Microbiology, and has written assessments and standardized tests for high school STEM classes as a freelance science writer.

An educator at Legacy Early College High School, Neena teaches a product-based writing strategies curriculum that culminates in an Honors Biology class, the ‘Legacy News,’ which produces daily broadcasts, and ‘The Lion’s Roar,’ a quarterly literary magazine. She also works with three groups of 8-12 students each, whose post-high school goals are to attend college or technical school.

Through SRL, Neena hopes her students explore science from different angles, as well as develop and expand their presentation and communication skills.
