After graduating from Bucknell University in 1991, I became a high school biology teacher back at home in the United States Virgin Islands. I taught for six years and then left to take a job with the US Fish and Wildlife Service as an interpretive park ranger and field biologist. I worked on a National Wildlife Refuge and conducted programs where students were able to interact with endangered sea turtles and lizards as well as other wildlife. Thus, for the past 20 years, I have worked with thousands of young people of all ages both in and outside of the traditional classroom setting. Recently, I left the US Virgin Islands to enroll in graduate school and moved permanently to Maryland after getting married.
I enjoy teaching and my passion for the life sciences empowers me as an instructor. My research and field work have always included mentoring programs where I have trained student interns in field methods.
I am anxious to help students understand the concepts which make the life sciences so interesting and important.
All subjects from cell theory forward. I am particularly proficient in genetics, photosynthesis, meiosis and mitosis as well as all aspects of animal biology.
I have taught Advanced Placement Biology and have prepared many students for the AP exam.
My work in conservation with populations of endangered species has made it vital that I understand ecological concepts.
