Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Angel Rodriguez

This is my 20th year teaching chemistry and physics in District 113.  Also, I am teaching Criminalistics, a new course at HPHS. Prior to teaching, I was an environmental chemist for Commonwealth Edison.  I earned my B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Illinois-Urbana and a Masters of Education from DePaul University.  When I am not teaching, I am busy with my three children, two sons ages 21 and 24, and one daughter age 16.  My husband and I have enjoyed 28 years of marriage and truly understand parenting teenagers! It is my teaching philosophy that learning science should be fun, engaging and practical. I sincerely care about my students and want to help them achieve their goals.
