I will be teaching both freshman Biology, AP Biology, and Bioinformatics during the 2017-2018 school year.  
I am an Alternate Route teacher, meaning I didn't major in education as an undergraduate but followed a traditional science curriculum.  I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Rochester majoring in Chemical Engineering.  I attended Rutgers University for my graduate studies and received a PhD in Molecular Biology with a focus on Computational Biophysics.  In addition to my academic studies I have worked in both the software and pharmaceutical industries.  
I love teaching and learning and am excited to bring this passion to the UCVTS.  In addition to teaching within the UCVTS system, I have four years experience teaching both biology and chemistry courses at Essex County College as well as graduate course sections at Rutgers. 

All freshman biology students use Google Classroom for assignments, information, and collaboration.  Google classroom is only accessible with a UCVTS account.
