My name is Towanda Booker and this is my second year at SWAKE. I will be teaching 6th and 7th grade Basic Computer Skills- including Keyboarding, and 8th grade Biotechnology this school year.
For about 18 years, I have worked in the Biotech/ Scientific field. My experiences include teaching, research & development, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, medical devices, quality control microbiology, and manufacturing. I hold a BS degree plus more than 30 graduate hours in Biology from North Carolina Central University along with certifications in both Biotechnology-Bioworks and Cell Culture techniques.
I have two children, 24 and 14, and am a long time resident of North Carolina.
( Grew up in Halifax County NC, lived in Durham, NC for the past 31 years, and have worked in RTP and the triangle for almost my entire career.)
