Biology is the scientific discipline that most excites me, and that I first fell in love with as a kid. While it's estimated there are some 100 trillion cells that make up your body, it's also said that we have more bacteria, viral and fungal particles on us and in us than we have human cells! So in essence, we are both organism and ecosystem! And while our bodies are host to this multitude of life, so too are we being hosted by our living planet earth. Biology places us within this web of life, and points to the role we play within it. I feel so privileged to be able to share my love of Biology with students, and it is my hope that all of my students take away some of that same excitement.
