Anne Bestgen
Science Teacher


This is my 20th year working at West Campus. Although things have changed a bit, this unique school holds a special place in my heart. After initially teaching Algebra, I have taught Biology and Human Anatomy & Physiology ever since. From class advisor (2005 & 2014), to coaching tennis, to athletic training, now my focus is on Key Club, Green Team, and Class of 2020.

A proud alumna of UC Davis (B.S.) and St. Mary’s College (M.S.), I was fortunate to play on a very successful college tennis team at UC Davis. I love watching baseball and have been a diehard Cleveland Indians fan since I was a child (my parents are Ohio natives). An avid hot yogi and Philz coffee drinker, I love to spend my time cooking, playing golf, and hanging out at the beach. A native of Northern California, I love to take short trips to all the beautiful places in this state.

One of my favorite quotes: “You never know how strong you are…until being strong is the only choice you have.”
