How did you first learn about PULSE

My PULSE professional synopsis:

While completing my PhD in Zoology at the University of Hawaii-Manoa (UHM), I gained experience and interest in science education curriculum development and research as an NSF Graduate Teaching in K-12 Education (GK-12) Fellow. In my first faculty position, I was a Co-PI and project coordinator for the UHM GK-12 program from 2002-2008. As project coordinator, I led the facilitation of successful partnerships between over 20 graduate biologists and a similar number of K-12 schools and community organizations. In 2007, I joined the faculty at Western Oregon University as the non-majors biology instruction coordinator. In this leadership position I have successfully re-designed instruction and supervised ten adjunct and tenure-track faculty members tasked with teaching non-majors biology. My research on science learning in biology novices was recognized in 2011 by the National Association of Biology Teachers with the Four Year College and University Section Research in Teaching Award.
