Ms. Stephanie Sadrian loves teaching sixth grade chemistry at BASIS Independent Fremont. Ms. Sadrian was born and raised in Austin, TX. She graduated cum laude from the University of California, Davis in 2006 with a B.S. in Molecular Biology and a specialization in Human Genetics. “My first teaching experience was in college, leading a lab discussion group. It was so much fun and I got a lot of great feedback from the students,” she recalls.
Ms. Sadrian recently completed her Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York, NY. Her work there incorporated molecular biology and data science to answer questions about cardiac development and regeneration. About teaching at BASIS Independent Fremont, she says, “I am most excited about empowering students so that they envision themselves as future leaders who will solve real-world problems, whether it’s storing energy from renewable resources, developing new treatments for disease, or adapting agriculture for life in outer space.”
“My goal is to create a classroom environment where students feel comfortable asking questions and sharing their ideas. These are critical skills for collaboration in science or any other field.”
When she’s not teaching, Ms. Sadrian enjoys spending time with her two boys, sewing, and maintaining an aquarium of fish and miniature shrimp.
