Senior Instructor in Biology

Welcome to my professional portfolio. I am an instructor in biology and the instructional design specialist at the Penn State New Kensington campus. I began this dual position in July, 2000. In this portfolio, I provide examples of my work in these two content areas.

I am happy to share the materials in this portfolio for academic purposes, but please first contact me for permission.

Many of the materials provided in this portfolio include digital images, which I have taken over the years to support biology instruction. Below are thumbnails of some selected images; click to view the full image.
