Mrs. Amanda Riojas
Hello, I am Mrs. Riojas and I will be teaching Biology I and Biology PreAP. This will be my sixth year teaching and my first year teaching Biology. I have a great passion for science and also for reading and have been very fortunate to teach in both areas. Prior to my teaching career I worked in the biomedical research field performing basic research in the field of neuroscience and then worked behind the scences at a phase 1 clinical drug trial company here in San Antonio TX. I left research to became a teacher in 2014 to inspire a lifelong love of learning and science in my students.
I feel honored to be a Maverick here at Madison High School.
