Mary Stueve joined the Biology Department at Saint Paul College in 2010. She has taught a wide variety of biology and chemistry courses; however, she is currently focused on teaching Human Body Systems and Nutrition. Mary received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Biology and Molecular Biology at University of Minnesota – Duluth. As part of her graduate studies, Mary researched metastatic breast cancer cells and osteolytic tumors. She focused on cell signaling pathways and transcription patterns involved in the cancer progression to bone. After graduate school, Mary served at several community colleges in Minnesota and Texas, both as an instructor and as an administrator. She moved back to her home state of Minnesota in 2009 and returned to her first passion, the classroom, in 2010 when she joined Saint Paul College. Mary loves a classroom setting where she learns as much from the students as they learn from her. She works to make her students feel comfortable interjecting in class and asking questions. She realizes that all students bring a unique background to the classroom and everyone can contribute their knowledge to the learning process of all students. In her spare time, Mary spends time with her husband and two young sons. She is also working to get her pilot’s license and is training for a marathon.
