I teach biology (introductory physiology and microbiology) in Michigan at Lansing Community College. My scientific training is in cellular pharmacology and biochemistry, earned at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have worked in industry and in K12 education as an AmeriCorps Volunteer.
I am passionate about facilitating undergraduate succeed by employing data supported pedagogy and providing opportunities for authentic research experiences. To develop my student’s understanding and passion for science, I feel it is vital to conduct legitimate research in class. I have created and executed various low-cost, multi-week open-ended research projects to bring course concepts to life.
I have extensive pedagogy training, I have been part of HHMI pre-faculty training programs, which lead recruitment into programs designed to accelerate the professional development for the next generation of leaders in biology education community colleges.
