Teaching Philosophy

"I consider myself a non-traditional lecturer. I constantly challenge myself to refine and expand on my interactive teaching methods. Lecture is a time for listening, thinking, learning, and discussion. The conversational tone of my lecture and lab courses allows all students, with diverse science backgrounds, to participate and add to our classroom conversations and activities. Student-centered instruction and STEM mentorship are the guiding concepts of my educational style and professional goals."
