Highline Community College

I've been teaching Environmental Science, Introductory Biology, Marine Biology and Oceanography at Highline College [www.highline.edu] since 2003. My pedagogy can be summarized by this quote from Alice Venable Middleton "Education is thinking, and thinking is looking for yourself and seeing what's there, not what you got told was there. Then you put what you see together. Once your eyeballs start working, then you can see the land is kind." I feel it's important for everyone to have a basic, working knowledge of science and the scientific method, and so I enjoy working with non-science majors who often come to my class with a wide variety of backgrounds and interests. I also love getting my students outside to experience nature firsthand, especially when it involves getting muddy.
