“What I love about teaching is being given the chance to share my love of science with my students and open their eyes to new information and opportunities. I love the fact that I will be able to watch my students grow in their knowledge and perhaps develop a passion for the subject that I am excited to share with them, as well as the chance to shape their lives and teach them lessons that extend beyond the classroom.” 

- Emma McMaster, current AYA Integrated Science licensure student
