Kali Levsen loves helping students find their “aha!” moments. Her teaching philosophy emphasizes student empowerment through dynamic teaching styles, building self-efficacy, and promoting self-awareness. She earned her undergraduate degree in biology from Iowa State University and has been a part of the research in annelid development. Afterwards, she moved to New Mexico and continued her studies, earning a Master of Public Health at New Mexico State University while working as a chemistry lab technician at UNM. The sunshine brought her to New Mexico and the wonderful people here have made it home.
