Caitlin Leach

Student Assistant

… is a sophomore at Miami University majoring in life and earth science education with plans to teach high school biology after graduation. She is currently one of the Project Dragonfly’s undergraduate student workers and is involved in the Miami University Teacher and Education Living Learning Community in her dorm. Caitlin works actively toward her dream of teaching by working with students as much as possible, including volunteering to judge a middle school science fair in Cincinnati and tutoring her brother and sister. She hopes to encourage her future students to pursue studies and careers in the field of science and to never stop asking questions about the world around them. Caitlin spends most of her summers at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden or playing Frisbee with her two spoiled pups, Phoebe and Cosmo. She also spends her time hiking in Hueston Woods, watching musicals with her roommate, and walking to uptown Oxford for late night ice cream and doughnut runs.
