Mr. Karara Muhoro

Welcome!  My name is Karara Muhoro, and I am excited about teaching Physical Science (PS) this year at O. Trent Bonner Middle School.  This is my seventeenth year teaching.  My first ten years were completed at a few schools in Los Angeles [including Compton, and Sherman Oaks, (California).  In Compton, I taught 7th-grade Life Science.  In Los Angeles and Van Nuys, I taught 9th Grade Biology, 10th Grade Chemistry, 11th Grade Physics, and High School Environmental Science.  I have also taught 8th Grade Physical Science at Sandusky Middle School in Lynchburg, Virginia (with the Lynchburg Public Schools).  During the time I was teaching at the middle school and high school levels, I concurrently taught Beginning Chemistry and General Chemistry [As a professor of Chemistry] at the college level for 14 years.  I served in the United States Army for about 13 years and mobilized during “Operation Nobel Eagle” ([1991 (was in the California Army National Guard.).  Furthermore, I used to volunteer at the local library [The Baldwin Library in Los Angeles, California] where I guided students with their science and mathematics homework) (My volunteer services were designed to help middle and high school students connect to their community while keeping up with their educational assignments ] 

Additional Activities:   In the past, I worked as an actor [Day-Player] in motion pictures like “Phone Booth” by 20th Century Fox, and “The Legend of the Tillamook Gold” [Filmed on Location on the Oregon Coast].  In addition to the motion picture, Phone Booth, I worked on one episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” [Episode 15, Starring:  Sarah Michelle Gellar (Where I played a warrior (Shadow man Number 2)) ].  I also did the voice of “Majini” in the video game, “Resident Evil Number 5”, released in 2008.

I enjoy the outdoors, which includes camping and hiking, and lawn manicuring, as well as gardening.  In addition, I enjoy watching sports, especially basketball and Football.  I am a Los Angeles Laker fan, in addition to the New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, Anaheim Dodgers, Boston Red Sox, and Chicago Cubs.  I also rescue homeless cats (whenever possible).  I do research on the Chemistry of the interaction of viruses with enzymes [Organic Catalysts that speed up the rate of chemical reactions [Visit: the link ( )].
