My name is Robert Durand. I am new to Westlake High School this year and I will be teaching freshman Biology. I was born and raised in Los Angeles by parents who we greatly involved in education. A value that I adhere to greatly today. I spent the last 20 years in Albuquerque, NM working in the telecommunications construction business. I decided to go into teaching as a way to bring my experience in the world to the classroom. I love biology.
