Aruni Pehl-Desilva


I am Aruni and I teach Environmental science and Chemistry.  I grew up in sunny California, and moved to Charleston in 2010.  I graduated from California State University Dominguez Hills with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and from Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California with a Doctor of Philosophy in Pathobiology. 

I live with my husband, my eight-year-old daughter, and a black Labrador, who thinks she owns the whole neighborhood! I am an avid reader of  19th century literature.

I have been teaching in Charleston since 2010.  I have been teaching at R.B. Stall High School since 2017.
