I graduated from NSLU, Natchitoches, LA in 1960s with a degree in Science Education and taught high school chemistry, biology and general science in Georgia public schools. Then I worked in a fungal genetics lab in Dallas, TX and was introduced to microbiology, genetics, and molecular biology. Received my Ph. D. in microbiology from UT Austin and taught biology and microbiology at Western New England College in MA for 23 years and retired as Professor Emerita. Now I am coordinating a GK12 program funded by NSF and a SEPA program funded by NIH at the University of Southern Maine, Portland. Both of these programs interact with teachers via professional development offerings and interactions with classes. It is very rewarding to work with teachers and their students.
