Making students love biology, especially those who enter the class hating the sciences. Instilling and supporting a love and wonder for the world around around them. I recognize that science is not an isolated topic, therefore I approach all of my lessons with interdisciplinary strategies that will help to develop the whole child and improve their learning skills so that they are more successful in all of their academic subjects and they become better problem solvers.
