Coord, Lecture Demonstration
In little under a year, Sarina has taken on an incredible amount of responsibility making sure the introductory courses in Biology run smoothly. She works hard to make sure that the 800 undergraduates served each semester by the Biology Core are provided with an exceptional education. She arrives early to provide graduate students with the support they need to teach effectively, In addition to preparing lab spaces for undergraduate courses, Sarina has taken an active role coordinating many of the projects we would not be able to offer students without such dedicated service, She has trained with faculty and staff to coordinate complex lab setups - and in turn trains others in maintaining these projects. Sarina applies her knowledge as a former UNM student to improve lesson plans and educational materials. Additionally, Sarina has been on call throughout the year to maintain the living collections our courses depend on.
Sarinia maintains a cheerful attitude and is always quick to offer help in unexpected situations. In short, Sarina works hard every day to anticipate the needs of the department and acts as the hidden engine driving the future success of hundreds of students.
