Ultimately, I want my students to leave my classroom being able to think critically about the world around them. I also feel that they should be able to understand the processes that underlie and connect all of the details. I believe that my students should know the basics of the scientific method to be better informed citizens whether or not they decide to go into the sciences through collecting, visualizing, and interpreting data. Personally, I want to get students excited about science, and not be afraid of the STEM fields. 

I also believe that mentoring students, not only in research, but in the lab and the field is imperative to their success in understanding the underlying process. I believe that fostering a creative and supportive learning environment will lead my students to a successful career in STEM fields, or at least in becoming a well informed and citizen.
