Instructor of Biology
Life is an adventure, we begin it from before our first breath and continue it beyond mortal death. Discovery (learning) is a part of that life. Every day is full of discovery for me. The smallest aspects can become the most teachable. Teaching pre-service teachers and future parents is one of the most rewarding careers in which I could possibly be. To say I readily chose this path would be incorrect: rather GOD chose it for me. I still get goosebumps when I look back at where I started in my teaching careeer over twenty years ago. I want to learn as much as I can to pass it forward. I am blessed to teach two courses that connect two of my passions: GOD and teaching. One opens the world of GOD's handiwork to my students; so they may see the intricate and balanced nature in which we live. The other showing the way nature and man interact and how nothing stands by itself - life is interwoven.
