Teaching Philosophy:

  • I strive to create learning opportunities in and out of the classroom. I teach hands-on field labs where students are able to learn about ecology and the natural environment through observation and experimentation. These hands-on experiences lead to an appreciation of the diversity around us, as well as a lifelong interest in learning about the flora and fauna we can find. These labs are a strong compliment to the rigorous curriculum I provide inside the classroom, thus developing well rounded and academically and professionally prepared students.

  • Environmental Studies
  • Conservation Biology
