I teach Introductory Biology (both lecture and lab) and Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CURES) at North Dakota State University, a mid-sized research university in Fargo, North Dakota. My introductory biology classes are large (135 students) and are taught in an active-learning classroom with students from a diverse mix of majors (agriculture, natural resources management, conservation, bioengineering, pharmacy, pre-health professions, etc.). I use BioInteractive resources because they make the process of science come alive and engage my students in the application of knowledge to current societal questions and issues. What I love most about teaching is seeing students’ aha moment when they first really understand how a biological process works. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy camping, hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing with my husband and two children.
