I have been fortunate to have been at Camosun College for 25 years, which has allowed me to live in a beautiful place, grow in many ways and be nourished by that which brings me happiness—teaching. While the University of Alberta is where my degrees came from, Camosun College is my alma mater. I am pleased to offer this work to all, and especially to my father, Dr. George Molnar, who was and is my scientific inspiration and my life’s model.
I have always loved learning and admired the many teachers in my life. They have been my role models and I am proud to call myself a teacher now. I am blessed to be able to teach for three institutions in British Columbia: Camosun College, the University of Victoria, and the University of British Columbia—my alma mater. It gives me great pleasure to know that the many students that I encounter in the classroom and beyond will use this textbook.
