With the help of my professors in many fields of study, like Chemistry and Mathematics, I was able to perform well and connect with my professors.  The professors, and the math lab, worked with me consistently and patiently allowing me to expand my knowledge and gain confidence in my work. I worked hard to accomplish my A.S. in Biology in May 2009, but with my experiences and education at NEO, I have continued on to pursue my Bachelors in Marine Biology at the Florida Institute of Technology.
