Biography

Wendy Worrall is a sessional professor of Biology.  She has taught at TWU in various capacities of Biology, Chemistry and Science Education since 1996.  With the inception of the TWU School of Education in 2002, she designed the science education course for Elementary teachers doing their fifth year practicum. 

She grew up in Abbotsford, B.C. where after high school she worked as a Medical Laboratory Technologist at MSA Hospital and then managed the B.C. Biomedical Abbotsford Branch for 5 years.  She left the work force for a short time to raise 2 sons and then returned to the education field.  At a private Christian school, Cornerstone Christian School, she taught many different math, science, Bible and music courses while simultaneously completing a B.Sc. at TWU.  She has been involved for many years in leading worship both in church services and prison chapels.  To truly integrate science teaching with a Christian worldview, she has an ongoing interest in the origins debate, seeking to have an understanding of the approaches that enable her to hold to the inerrancy of Scripture.  She lives in Abbotsford with her husband where for relaxation she has recently taken up watercolour painting using mostly biological subjects such as birds, butterflies, and flowers.
