I am an entomologist. When I was a kid I played outside, catching bees in mason jars and watching them. I would collect caterpillars and put them in a jar with a twig and some grass and watch them. I was allowed to go off and explore creeks and forests. And now I have a doctorate in entomology. I love being outside and I love taking students outside. I teach a very large variety of biology courses but my favorite course to teach is entomology. I teach at Sacramento City College and Sonoma State University, both are part-time positions.
