Dr. Thomas is our most recent addition to the Loyola University Biological Faculty as she joins us this Fall 2011 semester. She believes many people are born with an innate curiosity of what they encounter and observe throughout their lives. As a biologist, I relish the opportunity provided by one's mind to question and ponder. As an educator, I see this as a challenge and an opportunity to expand on an individual's want and need to discover and learn. My main objective as a biology educator is to teach students to learn to think and not just memorize facts.
