I have been enthusiastic about both biology and teaching as a career path since taking AP Biology in high school lead by a very engaging and dedicated teacher. Those two interests lead me to pursue both biological research and teaching experiences throughout my undergraduate and graduate school years. I am fascinated by biology as a subject and enjoy translating that passion in the classroom to students from varied backgrounds and interests in science and especially catering learning experiences to individual career interests and goals.
What I Love About Emmanuel:
I love the warm, welcoming atmosphere and the focus on student-centered learning and teaching. I enjoy the close-knit interactions between faculty and students that is facilitated by the small class sizes. I love the varied perspectives and strong, meaningful insights of students in the classroom environment.
