    EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
   
I believe that every student has the potential to make a difference in society and that it is the job of the instructor to guide them. In fact, the more difficult the student - the greater reward. If all else fails, however, send them to Swamp School.
     
    CURRENT PROJECTS
   
Industrial Effects on Ecosystem Development
Several professors and I researching the effects of fast food chains on the the ecological development of plants and the North American Wind Whisper Beetle.

S.W.A.M.P. (Students With A Messy Portfolio)
I currently advise student leaders in an organization that helps to prepare students for work after graduation.
     
    INTERESTS
