Mrs. Bita Gilliam

Born in Tehran, Iran, I am a "military brat" who lived in Tehran, Washington D.C, and Okinawa before arriving to San Antonio where I have called home since 1980.

After graduating from Northside Health Careers High school, I attended Texas A&M University in College station where I earned a B. S. in Biomedical Science.

After College, I returned to San Antonio, and worked as a research assistant at the University of Texas Health Science Center for two years before I discovered and pursued my desire to teach.

Before joining the MacArthur team ('05-current) I enjoyed teaching at Samuel Clemens HS ('97-'01), and Health Careers HS ('01-'05).  I have taugh a variety of sciences over the years including Biology, IPC, Chemistry, Physics, Environmenal Science, and Aquatic Science.  My current teaching assignment at MacArthur is PreAP Chemistry and PreAP Physics
