Ms. Kalée Tock earned her B.S. in Chemistry from Harvard University and an M.S. from the Stanford University Department of Chemistry. She then earned a second Master's degree in Learning, Design, and Technology from the Stanford School of Education. Her chemistry graduate work was focused in bioinorganic chemistry, where she worked on magnetic circular dichroism spectroscopy on Manganese complexes in the laboratory of Professor E.I. Solomon. She was Teaching Assistant and Head Teaching Assistant for several Stanford chemistry courses, in addition to a year-long Stanford core course titled, “Light in the Physical and Biological World.”
She taught many years for The Princeton Review, preparing students for the Chemistry and Physics sections of the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) exam. In 2010–2011, she was also an instructor for Wizbots, a middle school hands-on robotics course.
Ms. Tock is passionate about teaching and delighted by the opportunity to work with OHS students. She especially loves designing science experiments, some of the best ideas for which have come straight out of the lab notebooks of OHS students. Kalée has also worked on the K7 Math curriculum data analysis and software development at the former Education Program for Gifted Youth, and is the mother of three children. When not teaching, she enjoys camping, biking, sailing, launching compressed-air rockets, and reading fiction of all genres.
