I have been teaching animal science for 15+ years to student from Pre K up through 8th grade. I have studied animal sciences and led discussions on a variety of related subject with colleagues and students. I have taken several classes about animals of the African Plains and the ecosystems of Africa. I am able to convey important details and information to students in a fun and interesting way. I am comfortable working with kids of all ages, but specifically enjoy this age group. I love seeing students excitement and enthusiasm for animals! I enjoy hearing student own thoughts and ideas as they learn interesting facts and information on animals that they are interested in. I look forward to sharing this lesson with you learner!
