Biology Instructor

My name is Sam Hirt. I was born and raised in Alaska where I acquired a love for the outdoors and being in nature. I graduated high school from the northern most city in the United States in Barrow, Alaska. After high school I attended Brigham Young University where I earned a Bachelor's of Science in Integrative Biology. I then moved to Alabama and earned my Master's of Science in Biology at Auburn University in Dr. Troy Best's lab. I decided to stay in Auburn to earn my Phd and am currently a PhD candidate. As a graduate student I have taught lectures in multiple courses including Anatomy and Physiology I and II, Microbiology, Environmental Science, Pathology, and Principles of Biology. I have also taught multiple labs including Anatomy and Physiology, Comparative Anatomy, General Biology, and Mammalogy. I have had the experience of both writing and grading research papers and can empathize with the struggle involved in writing a paper, but also know what a teacher is looking for.
