My teaching philosophy is to make science accessible to all. Biology is not about memorizing abstract terms, it’s about solving real-world problems, and all students, regardless of background, should have the opportunity to obtain the knowledge, skills, and tools to become valued problem-solvers in their communities.

  • Ecology
