About Maurice

I am currently a Master of Science student at Georgia State University (GPA: 3.67). My concentration is in Applied and Environmental Microbiology. I now perform research under George Pierce Ph.D., and my work encompasses fungal control and molecular cloning. My ultimate goal is to receive my Ph.D. from Georgia State University or Emory University and work with either the Center for Disease Control and Prevention or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Since January 2015, I have been teaching Introductory Biology at Georgia State University. During this time I have developed a passion for teaching and have aimed to become a better instructor with each semester. On April 2016, I was awarded the Graduate Award for Outstanding Instruction by the biology faculty of Georgia State University. I currently hold a Bachelor of Science from Georgia State University, and I am in my second year of the Master program.

During my early academic career, I was taught biology by pure memorization. This approach never really worked for me, and not until I started my graduate studies did the method switch from memorization to discussion. At this point, I realized that science needs to be taught in a discussion style, and I have attempted to reflect this in my teachings. Also, I want to teach students how to find answers with the currently available technology and help them become independent.
