Dr. Schumpert is a lifelong Carolina fan and a passionate educator devoted to making science more accessible to all students. After studying Daphnia aging and helping to establish different molecular techniques to help study the small water flea, Dr. Schumpert turned to pedagogy and took his sciences skills to the classroom. Dr. Schumpert is always striving to make his classroom a warm and inviting place for students to learn and he implements advanced teaching strategies and technologies. He believes science is a universal language and hopes to impart the love and wonder of nature to all his students.
