Biology Professor

Trained research scientist turned instructor- and loving it. Teaching is as much an art as it is a science. I firmly believe the key to being an effective educator is to be engaging and yet express order, to be dynamic, not just knowledgeable, and to find the balance between inspiring and challenging students to seek answers and ask questions. I once heard that thought flows in terms of stories - stories about events, stories about people, and stories
about intentions and achievements. The best teachers are the best story-tellers, because we learn in the form of stories.
