Because she excelled in her math and science courses, everyone pushed Amber Lancaster towards pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California. Although she really enjoyed making robots, she decided to spend the next few years teaching English as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Morocco. Upon her return to the United States, she knew she wanted to continue teaching, but she switched to teaching science, her true passion. She received her Master’s in Education from the University of California– Berkeley in 2009 and has been teaching high school Biology at the June Jordan School for Equity in San Francisco, California ever since.
