"Why?" is my favorite scientific word: there are more questions than answers in science, and I am impatient to find out the rest of the answers... As a High School Chemistry Teacher, I wanted to inspire students to become scientists - after four years teaching in Duval County I am proud and pleased that many of my HS students went on to major in chemistry, bio-chemistry, and related majors. I am currently applying my chemistry knowledge to my own studies as a full-time PhD student in Epidemiology at the University of Florida (UF). I also teach graduate courses in Public Health for the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, it is an honor to be able to share my passion for learning with the UF community. Here's my UF profile page:

    General Science Careers

    I am teaching a Semester class of Career Research (8th Grade) and this collection of Career of the Month from The Science Teacher journal will be a wonderful resource.

    Medical Science Careers

    Next semester I am booked to teach a Middle School class on Career Research... we are a Medical Magnet school, and I wanted to have some ideas up my sleeve to help start the semester with a sparkle. I already have excited students emailing me wanting to know what the class scope is (they heard about the Food Science Research class I led last year!), so these resources are EXACTLY what I needed to help me start thinking of outside-the-box medical science careers.
