  • Question

    How would you describe what happens during one of your most successful classes?


    I feel my class has been most productive when students ask questions during and after class. If students are not asking questions, I am not getting them engaged in the class.


  • Question

    What makes your curriculum interesting or valuable to students?


    Biology impacts every part of our lives whether we know it or not. Many times when they first notice this, they become very fascinated.

    Students love when I engage them in my active research. They see that biology can be relevant and interesting.

  • Question

    Many times, students do not know there are different ways to study for different people. I often find it helps for a student to find their learning style and learn to use it.
