I believe everyone deserves access to a high quality education and that education, in whatever form it may come, is the key to a person’s future. Moreover, I enjoy teaching because it allows me the opportunity to help students improve their critical thinking skills, learn about nature, and better understand how science works. I also enjoy trying to help students create and navigate a pathway to their own future career and hopefully enjoy the same level of success as I have found at TCC.
