Personal Statement:
My passion for teaching has grown since my undergraduate studies, where I began tutoring freshman biology students. The opportunity to spark an interest or a passion for science has always been the most exciting aspect of teaching for me, and it is still just as rewarding to this day. I hope to enhance my teaching abilities with POISE in order to pursue a career of education in biology.
