My work in the field of education ranges from helping in classrooms with reading time, helping to manage student plays and working as a camp counselor. I have worked at the New England Aquarium as a camp counselor in the Harbor Discoveries program for the past two Summers. Through this program, I could plan a curriculum with the full resources of the Aquarium.

My work in the field of education ranges from helping in classrooms with reading time, helping to manage student plays and working as a camp counselor. I have worked at the New England Aquarium as a camp counselor in the Harbor Discoveries program for the past two Summers. Through this program, I could plan a curriculum with the full resources of the Aquarium. I focused lessons on simple scientific methods and topics, introducing “real life” science to the campers in a fun and interactive way. I have also taught at SeaWorld Orlando in a similar program, and was able to design and teach a special science class at Middlebury College at a local Middle School. Currently, I am teaching at high school biology.

I like to try and bring the science to the student, and make it relevant to their daily life. I believe that by engaging the personal aspect and making each topic relevant in that way, students are more motivated to learn and have more fun doing it!

Genetics

Aside from taking many related courses during my college education (including Human Genetics and The Cell Biology and Genetics of Cancer), I also have many years of work experience. I first worked as an undergraduate at the University of New Hampshire working in a genetics lab. The research done there on the rapid evolution of cichlid fish in Lake Malawi (Africa) was later published in Molecular Ecology, volume 13. I also have 3 years experience working in a biotech lab that focused on the genetics of Drosophila melanogaster.
