I like to consider myself the perpetual student, but as such I have become quite skilled in sharing my knowledge with others. I've been in school since I was three, two years of preschool, straight through high school (was in the top 15% of my class of ~1200 students)to college first at UT Arlington where I first taught a friend's brother that was being home schooled in French. I transferred to Trinity University where I continued to teach/tutor students in my favorite subject, chemistry, as a free tutor in the Chemistry Department. After graduating with my BS in Biochemistry, I continued on to graduate school to pursue a PhD in biological sciences. During graduate school I taught a lot more than I would have thought I would at a large medical center. My teaching included aiding a middle school student in cancer theory so that he could successfully complete a science fair project, supervising the research activities by two incoming medical students doing research the summer before their first year in medical school, supervising a high school student member of the TAMS program in the required year of research, and a Green Fellow during her year of research sponsored by the fellowship. Additionally, I volunteered one night a week to tutor middle school students in math at one of the local middle schools in Dallas. I really enjoy this interaction with the younger generation and feel like it's part of my duty to impart my knowledge to eager minds.
