Inclusive, engaged, research-led

Making classes personal
"With large lectures classes, we heavily rely on Undergraduate Learning Assistants to help make a big class feel small. Every time I see peer teaching interactions, I’m inspired by our [our assitants] willingness to give their time and energy to make our students feel known and help them be successful in the course."
Inspired by her students
"Their energy and enthusiasm for learning the human body is infectious, and being a part of their journey is truly a blessing."
