My teaching goals are to inspire students to engage in the self-learning process, to enable analytical and problem-solving skills, and to promote self-confidence and enthusiasm towards higher education. I am highly organized with material and believe in breaking down the learning content into smaller achievable daily tasks and activities. I have taken several graduate-level STEM courses in Biology, Ecology, Statistics, and Environmental Science.
Ph.D. in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology from Clemson University and worked as a Teaching Assistant for 6 years for Clemson's Department of Biological Sciences mentoring and instructing undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds in freshman-level biology and ecology. Also mentored and instructed undergraduate students for environmental law and policy courses for Clemson’s Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation (FEC).
