Welcome to Honors BIOLOGY
I'm very excited to share the experience of Honors Biology with you this year!
A little about me. I was born and raised in Liberia, West Africa and grew up surrounded by many creatures. A leopard, a hippo, chimps, monkeys and deer, to name a few, shared my home. Because of this amazing experience I have always been passionate about animals. I have Bachelors degree in Environmental Studies and Biology and a Masters degree in Conservation Biology. Before becoming a teacher I worked many years as a primatologist for such great organizations as Conservation International, the IUCN and the DuMond Conservancy for Primates and Tropical Forests.
I have two beautiful children, a boy and a girl, and a wonderful husband. I continue to have a herd of creatures at home (not so exotic though). I have 10 dogs, 4 cats, 5 ferrets, and 3 fish! In my spare time (not much of that), I enjoy being anywhere near the ocean (in it or under it), reading and being with my family. I also volunteer for a dog rescue organization called Dogs on the Move.
I LOVE to teach and I hope that I will inspire you to enjoy biology this year!
