I love teaching students biological topics. The phrasing of that sentence is purposeful and important, as it reminds me that I am educating students first and foremost. As an educator, I strive to approach content in a variety of ways, having students say “I never thought of it that way”, or “that makes total sense, I get it now!”, is very rewarding. As a life long learner, I want to inspire my students to learn how to think and how to problem solve. I want my students to become self directed learners who gain the confidence and skills needed to succeed beyond my classroom.
Teaching and learning topics/strategies of interest:
- Large classes
- Active learning
