I used to want to be a marine biologist, archaeologist, molecular biologist, zookeeper, advocate, biochemist, nuclear physicist, writer, field biologist, chemical engineer, artist, geneticist, evolutionary entomologist, pyrotechnician, cat-hearder, activist, President, and Queen of Everything. Turns out, I found a profession that lets me be most of those things. It doesn’t get any better than this.
I’m a National Board Certified science teacher (NBCT AYA/Science 1998, renewed) and avid scuba diver (retired mixed gas/technical instructor) in the PNW. I was a volunteer diver at the local aquarium (I washed windows and vacuumed shark poo and other debris from the exhibits, and no, we don’t take the sharks out and put them in giant buckets while we are diving.) Now that the dissertation is finished, defended, and in publication, I have a few other projects on the burners. My husband is afraid.
Anything posted here is my own opinion and does not reflect the position of my employer, university affiliations, Twitter, NBPTS, Facebook, my husband, my dogs, and certainly not my cat.
