Congratulations to Joanna Lee for receiving the Outstanding Teaching Fellow in Biology Award!

Joanna Lee is recognized for her teaching excellence when teaching Tropical Marine Invertebrates (CAS BI 569) and Marine Genomics (CAS BI 550) this year with her PI, Dr. John Finnerty. In these classes she helped guide the students through the research process and was responsible for preparing their equipment and materials.

“My favorite thing about being a teaching fellow is that I am in a position where I can help students without them feeling judgement. I’m also incredibly thankful for the wonderful students I’ve worked with; they are teaching me as much as I am teaching them.”
