It was as a student at PGSS that my love for the study of science was confirmed, but it was as a teaching assistant that I realized how much I love sharing what I love with others, especially young people; thus my decision to become a scienceteacher. I frequently point to my time at PGSS as a formative experience in my life that has played a huge role in the career path I have chosen to follow.
