As a scientist living in the information age, it is both my responsibility and my pleasure to share a rich and ever growing wealth of scientific knowledge with the general public. As an evolutionary biologist, it has become my mission to help others understand the sometimes overwhelmingly complex process of evolution. In order to help others accomplish this, I have teamed up with another PhD student at UNC to develop a suite of lesson plans to aid current educators in teaching the topic of evolution. In addition, I have taught these subjects directly in the classroom, and am always looking for more opportunities to do so. If you are an educator and are interested in using one of my lesson plans, give me a shout and I'll give you all of the necessary info and files. If you are interested in me coming to teach a day in your classroom, please feel free to send me an email and we can set something up! If you have any other ideas in mind, I am always open to suggestions!
