Lauren "... Learning how to think and digest new knowledge is what I can teach in addition to knowledge. While science satisfies my inquisitive nature, providing answers and knowledge, art feeds my creative seed and occupies my free time. The creativity of an artist can be a powerful asset to a teacher. I possesses an artist's creative ability to view the world and its problems in different perspectives, intuitive knack to come up with unexpected ways of looking and understanding new concepts, and flexibility of thought..."

Rachael "...I love the arts. 3. I love learning. I began my undergraduate career at University of Maryland, Baltimore County unsure of where to target my future. With my love of science and art, it seemed only logically to begin by majoring in both!

Conklin "... My area of interest is Genetics, and I hope to eventually receive my PhD in Bioinformatics. I believe that learning is all about asking questions. The most important skill we can develop as students and people is to realize the things that we do not know and find ways to ask questions about them. Whatever these things are, they are most certainly different for everyone, and challenging them and tackling them head on is a sure fire way to grow intellectually..."
