Mrs. Usha Kala

I am  glad to be a part of Houston Academy For International Studies faculty as a chemistry instructor. Teaching Chemistry is one of passions. I received my Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Master of Philosophy in Chemistry from one of the prominent universities from India. I also did research on Enzymes and published a number of research papers. 

I have been teaching chemistry and physics in Booker T. Washington High School and High School For Engineering Professions for the last 10 years where I was also sponsoring FIRST Robotics Team. Before joining HISD, I taught chemistry and Physics at Burton High School in Burton ISD for seven years. I am also a part time Chemistry professor at Houston Community College for the last five years.

I look forward to work with you to facilitate and support our students to enhance their academic and social skills to be  better persons and citizens.
