Mrs. Catherine Druck

I come from a long line of teachers nevertheless; I pursued a career in science, working for Chevron Chemical (Ortho Division) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  The work was exciting and rewarding, but something was missing.  In 1987, I decided to make a career change. I attended evening classes, received my teaching credential a year later, and never looked back.

I was hired by West Contra Costa school district 29 years ago. During that time I have taught elementary science classes, middle school science at Portola Middle School which was recently renamed Korematsu Middle School, and Pinole Valley High School.

Vista High is my final stop. I have been at Vista for the last 14 years, teaching

biology and chemistry. In addition, I plan and implement the academic curriculum for my 24 individual independent study students who I meet with throughout the week.

I am also the technology liaison for our school, bringing updates and information to our faculty from the district. 

This school is the perfect fit for my skills and personality. I love the family-like atmosphere between students and teachers.  In addition, I am in awe of my

colleagues’ professionalism. It is truly my honor to work at this school.
