Judy Rehburg
20 years teaching, 19 years at El Dorado
Currently teaches Anatomy/Physiology and AP Environmental Science; previously taught Biology, Chemistry, and Life Science.
      Mrs. Rehburg went to Chaffey Community College in Rancho Cucamonga, then transferred to Cal State Fullerton where she received her degree in Biological Sciences in 1999. Soon after, she was encouraged by a friend to "try out" teaching, so she went back to CSUF to get her teaching credential. Receiving her credential in 2001, she immediately found a job with PYLUSD at Bernardo Yorba Middle School. After one year there, she transferred to El Dorado where she could never dream of leaving. 
      Mrs. Rehburg is happily married and has been since 1999 and has two daughters; one at El Dorado and one at Tuffree. She also has a menagerie of pets, including 2 dogs, 3 cats, and a wide variety of reptiles and amphibians. Her hobbies include working on puzzles, hiking, and making science content videos on Instagram!
Adeline Tang
8 years teaching, 7 years at El Dorado
Currently teaches Biology and AP Computer Science Principles; previously taught Honors Biology and Life Science.
      Miss Tang went to University of California, Irvine where she realized she wanted to become a Biology teacher and received her B.S. in Biology/Education and teaching credential. She also did research in a marine virus lab that had an education outreach area in Crystal Cove State Park. Her first teaching job was in Coachella Valley but she wanted to come back to her home in Orange County. Thankfully, she found her current job at El Dorado and moved back right away. She later went to Point Loma Nazarene University to earn her M.S. in Biology. After teaching Biology for a few years, she decided to change things up by learning about and earning her teaching credential in Computer Science with the Orange County Department of Education. She enjoys teaching both Biology and Computer Science and hopes to continue learning and growing as she teaches her students each day!
      Miss Tang finds joy in both the highs and the lows of life. She has a wonderful, loving family and a supportive church community in Irvine. Her hobbies include experimenting in the kitchen, walking/hiking/biking to enjoy the views, eating all kinds of food, and reading stories of all kinds.
