Yolanda Kirkpatrick

Master Teacher, Clinical Assistant Professor, Center for Enhancing Education in Mathematics and Sciences


My teaching and research interests are biological sciences, science education, and the cultural border crossing of teachers and students in these areas. I have volunteered with a number of organizations including AmeriCorps and the Children’s Defense Fund.

I began my career as a research assistant at Vanderbilt University. My teaching experiences include teaching of science classes at a math and science center, as a graduate teaching assistant, and thirteen years at a community college in Tennessee. I have taught general biology, microbiology, anatomy and physiology, and a biology concepts course for education majors.
