Delta State University

I am an Assistant Professor of Science Education at Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi.  I teach introductory biology and geoscience courses in addition to methods of teaching elementary and secondary science.

My primary research interests have made a slight shift from the Nature of Science explicitly to socioscientific issues where I study preservice teacher's perceptions of climate change.
