Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work in a field of marine biology? The marine environment is a fascinating world and many people have the amazing opportunity to study it. From the darkest depths of the ocean such as the Mariana trench, to some of the most shallow environments such as estuaries, the marine world is extremely diverse. People such as Research Technicians and Aquatic Land Managers get to work in this amazing ecosystem. Some marine scientists get to travel the...
My entire life I wanted to explore the ocean and the environment. I have always had a great appreciation for the processes that are not completely understood and the unknowns that have yet to be discovered in the environment. In the beginning of my professional career in research, I worked as a naturalist on a whale watch boat and as a laboratory technician working on environmental clean up projects such as water and land pollution. Then I moved into my dream job of being a research chemist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in marine & geochemistry where I was able to be in the foundation of the research community and learn from many amazing scientists & researchers who devoted their life to exploring the mysteries of the environment as well as protecting the animals and organisms living in it. For me, working as a student mentor with graduate and post graduate students, made this experience one I will always cherish. As a teacher, I want my students to be excited about what they are learning and with my background in research, I will work extra hard to make sure that if there is an aspect of a topic that a student is interested in, I will make every effort to alter my lessons to include those topics.
Any necessary materials will be provided by the teacher, there are no materials required to purchase.
