Straight Talk from a Duhawk

I try to share with students the same passion, love and fascination I have for biology and the natural environment around me. I strive to keep students excited and offer opportunities to experience biology–see something new and wonder what it is, how it works and why it’s there–challenge them, and encourage them to see things from a different perspective, one they may not have considered before, so they can think globally and act locally, especially in the context of environmental sustainability. Really, I teach to give them an opportunity to live our tagline. To be more. Be Loras.
