I taught laboratory courses for the Biology department at Northeastern University. I am passionate about teaching and for each course I focused instruction on the foundations of each discipline. To demonstrate the importance and application of fundamental concepts and spark student curiosity, I would connect laboratory content to current scientific research. I actively engaged students both in groups and individually, while treating each student with respect. Further, I always aimed to communicate my curiosity for the natural world into each course that I have taught.
I have experience teaching laboratory courses in Mammalogy, Ornithology, Wildlife Biology, Vertebrate Zoology, Invertebrate Zoology, General Biology 1 (stressed the principles of biology, focusing on the molecular and cellular level) , General Biology 2 (stressed the principles of biology, focusing on the diversity of life from bacteria, fungi, plants, invertebrates and vertebrates), Comparative Anatomy, and Anatomy and Physiology.
Representative student evaluations of my courses: The student evaluation of my teaching and their comments are at the end of each section. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Junior High School Science Teacher, Saint Catherine of Siena School, Norwood, MA
I loved teaching junior high school. I designed curriculum and taught biology, earth science, and physical science to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Everyday, I tried to inspire and actively engage students in science with inquiry-based pedagogy, including student participation in a Diamondback terrapin conservation and research program.
