Professional Advice

One of the most important things to realize is that learning is a lifelong process. Involve yourself with people and opportunities which allow you to continually grow as a person and in your career. Have a passion for what you do. As an unknown author once said, “Do what you love, and love what you do.”

Why Cedar Crest?

I enjoy teaching at Cedar Crest College because it is a close, friendly environment. Since the class sizes are relatively small, I have welcomed the opportunity to really get to know my students and interact with them one on one. I have a passion to share the exciting world of science with my students, and feel that this is very well accomplished in the community environment of our science department. I feel very fortunate to teach at Cedar Crest College because I am not only able to develop meaningful interactions with my colleagues, but also with the individuals that I teach. To have a lasting impact on their lives and future careers is very important to me.
