Career Interests:


What has your Saint Michael's experience, particularly your experience as a biology major, been like?

My experience as a biology major at Saint Michael�s College has helped me prepare for my future as a science teacher. The biology department has provided me with wonderful role models whose passion for teaching is evident. The professors care deeply about the subject matter they present, sharing their excitement with students. The variety of biology courses offered at Saint Michael�s has greatly expanded my knowledge of the subject. I feel confident that my experiences here will help me in my future as an educator.

What additional activities did you pursue related to the biology major or your major in education?

I participated in an internship at the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. The ECHO internship allowed me to combine my interest in science and teaching. I taught pre and post field trip science lessons at various schools in the Burlington area while working at ECHO.

What are your post-graduate plans?

I am currently looking for a teaching position in either middle school or high school biology.
