Faculty Perspective

I enjoy teaching biology very much and bring a lot of interest and enthusiasm to my classes. I also believe biology is best learned outside the classroom and I offer a variety of different service-learning extra credit opportunities to get students learning in natural settings. I also believe that one cannot understand the complexities of environmental issues without having some sense of the many interactions that take place within ecosystems, so an ecosystem project is an important aspect of all my Biology courses.
