Hello, my name is Martha Sager and I teach biology and Anatomy and Physiology with Review (I and II).
I earned my Bachelor's in Biology from UCSC, and have a MS in biological oceanography and a PhD. in science education from Florida Institute of Technology. I’ve taught science at both the high school and college level, and enjoy most the interaction with students and those great “aha” moments when a concept becomes clear or a new interest starts to grow. It is always gratifying to see a student come into a class with concerns about “taking science” and to leave the class with a feeling of accomplishment and a greater understanding in biology or anatomy/physiology.
As might be assumed from my background, I also have an interest in aquatic and marine environmental science and the protection of these ecosystems. I generally manage to work these subjects into my lectures sometime during the semester. I also enjoy wildlife photography as a hobby.
I hope my students leave my classes with a greater understanding (and interest) in biology, the environment, and themselves and are able to make informed decisions in these areas.
