BioWeb Goals & Expectations
When students leave my class, I want them to have a love of learning and a sound grasp of science that stays with them throughout life. I truly believe the key to achieving this love of learning is brought about through active participation in class and in the field.
As students are enticed by the secrets of
the biological world, they realize what is important to them as individuals.
When they gather their first water sample and see it under the microscope
they'll notice a world of living organisms that's smaller than their eyes
can see. When they view the solar system through a telescope they'll
see images that are larger than life. They'll get to see parts of the world
and universe that they never knew existed, igniting an overwhelming personal
interest. Just as an artist paints his/her innermost self on the
canvas, my students will see how nature has expressed itself through the
world of science. By capturing their interest first, I hope to initiate
a lifetime love of learning.
