Dr. Maria P. Isaza
Title: Dept. Chair and Associate Professor
Department: Biology and Chemistry
My interest in teaching comes from my own positive experiences as an undergraduate as well as a graduate student. Teaching allows me to share my knowledge of biological principles that should be understood by college-educated citizens. I want my students to leave my class with an understanding of the relevance of biology to their lives and to our planet. I believe that learning should be fun and that students who are active participants learn much more than those whose participation is passive. I love teaching at a community college because it provides me with the opportunity to interact very closely with students.
