Katie’s Story

Teaching Disciplines

Biology and Environmental Sciences

Why Biology and Environmental Sciences

“I love life sciences! I enjoy seeing examples of what I teach my students everyday. My goal is for my students to be able to look at their worlds and do the same. It is great for me to provide an example of something in class and have my students connect and say, ‘Oh, I have seen that!’”
