Teaching Interests: Introductory biology for majors, reproductive biology


  • B.S., University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • M.S., Samford University
  • Ph.D., University of Alabama at Birmingham

Being retired, my interests are ways that students learn. I have consulted with other instructors in the department who teach Introductory Biology. I have taught in the University Honors Program since my retirement. In my tenure in the Biology Department, I was the Coordinator for the Freshmen Biology Classes and Laboratories. I also worked with students preparing for careers in professional programs. My academic training was in embryology and teratology.
