Dr. Arianna DiFrancesco

Welcome to Biology! My name is Arianna DiFrancesco, and this is my 4th year teaching Biology. I am originally from Rome Italy, but I have lived in Houston for more than 15 years and I love it. 

My students call me Mrs. D. or Dr. D. 

I love science and I love teaching. I started teaching in my second year of college, and I saw most of my friends and got to grade them in the lab. I was able to get a Bachelor of science and a Master in Biology at 22 years old and I continued my studies in human pathology. 

I came to the United States in 1996, to complete some experiments for my PhD thesis and I never left. I am married to Brad, a professor at UH and I have 3 daughters, 2 in college and one 8th grader. My house is loud and full of people and pets, dog, cats, parakeet and fish. 

I like walking and trekking, canoeing, and iceskating. 

To relax I listen to audio-books and bake cakes. 

I hope to get a bunch of science lovers by the end of the year!
