TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
 
I have always been fascinated by biology, and as an Instructor I strive to instill that same fascination in my students. Rather than just present and explain complex ideas to them, we practice the critical thinking skills necessary to break down and understand any complex problem. I draw from my experience as a research scientist and other real world examples to demonstrate that the ideas we discuss in class are not abstract and unrealistic, but instead can be seen in our everyday lives. Ultimately, I work to give them the passion, skills, and confidence to be successful in their careers as well as informed, engaged citizens within their communities.
