"I first became interested in ocean exploration when I was in middle school – then mostly forgot about it until I (luckily) rediscovered the passion while majoring in geology in college. I was (and still am) drawn to the mystery, beauty, peaceful serenity, and constant motion of the ocean. These are the reasons I chose to teach middle school. I think the best way I can advance the scientific field is by sharing my love and enthusiasm for science with young students."
