A typical day at work was fun and energetic. My students were always excited to be in class and learn. My co-workers were wonderful and very helpful. The hardest part of my job was coming up with different lesson plans to keep things interesting. The most enjoyable part of my job was when my students told me they loved my class.

Great place to dive into research
Undergraduate Research Assistant (Former Employee), Lexington, KYOctober 12, 2012
Great place to dive into research. Whether it be browsing scholarly articles, measuring samples or running an experiment, I found enjoyment out of it all. I was able to broaden my knowledge of supercritical fluid extraction and the amazing compounds found in plant matter. Management was good and I was allowed adequate time to complete my other studies. – more... The hardest part was composing a final report summarizing my findings, but it wasn't too much of an ordeal and I learned a lot in the process of making it. – less
