My passion for science education,
outreach and research developed during my time as an undergraduate
molecular biology student at Millersville University. During my time at
Millersville I had the opportunity to be a teaching assistant for an
upper level developmental biology class. I helped teach this class
alongside my research advisor of two years, where I helped develop and
guide small laboratory projects with students. Because of my research
and TA experience with my advisor Dr. Judy Cebra-Thomas, I had the opportunity to take part in the Portal to the Public
NSF outreach program at the North Museum in Lancaster, PA. This
invaluable experience taught me the importance of scientists
communicating their research with their communities, providing role
models for developing students, and helping people of all backgrounds
and ages to understand the connections of science to their everyday
lives. These values for education, outreach, and research have guided me
throughout my years as a Research Laboratory Manager at both the
University of Pennsylvania and UD (under Dr. Sarah Millar, and Dr. Salil Lachke respectively), as well as a Molecular Biology graduate student under Dr. Melinda Duncan in the Biology Department at UD.
As a preceptor at the Harker ISE Lab, I
help coordinate and teach introductory integrated Biology and Chemistry
classes. In this role, I teach active learning modules during studio,
attend and assist with active learning modules in both Biology and
Chemistry lectures, and engage students during laboratory activities. I
help develop and plan laboratory, studio and lecture activities. I
coordinate with the teaching team, Lab Technicians, and IT Specialist to
ensure all of the active learning modules, and laboratory activities
are prepared for the course. As a preceptor, I am also responsible for
advising and mentoring students, Biology and Chemistry Graduate Teaching
Assistants, and undergraduate student volunteers. It is this last
responsibility that I value most in my position as preceptor, and
encourage students to attend regular office hours. One of my passions
aside from teaching and mentoring, is engaging in STEM outreach
opportunities within UD and the surrounding Delaware community. My
position as preceptor enables me to take part in and lead STEM outreach
programs. My main interest and focus in STEM outreach is assisting
underrepresented populations in developing key skills in STEM
disciplines, and connecting high school educators to researchers and
educators within higher education.
