That "Ah-ha" moment inspires my teaching. My main goal for student success is to ensure students have an appreciation for the world around them. By understanding the basic principles of biology, students can be better inhabitants of the Earth and not take its natural resources for granted. I understand that students come from diverse backgrounds and traditional classes may not meet their needs. That is why I have re-developed my courses to encourage networking, team building, and communications skills required in the workforce.
