This giantmicrobe loving, corgi-obsessed, rock climbing, marathon running, softball player, forever patient, biochemist and molecular biologist completed her first term of teaching. My students wrote the sweetest notes and had the kindest words to share.

This is what I do. I do it for my students. I hope they see my passion and determination to ensure they learn.

One day, you will have the chance to see me in the classroom, love. One day, you will see how much I care and the lengths I go to for my students. One day, love, you will see everything make sense, because I wouldn’t be here without you.
