Description

Class Experience

I am a trained naturalist and ecologist and I have been engaging youth of all ages to discover their natural world through creative projects for 10 years as part of after-school, in-school and summer enrichment programs. Because of the diverse teaching settings I have taught this subject, I have incorporated activities and student-led investigations that make this topic fun to learn and experience while also ensuring that students gain an in depth understanding of the science of the world around us! As part of my college degree programs I completed many environmental surveys to study biodiveristy. I am enjoy bird watching in my free time. So this topic and class series is one that I really enjoying teaching.
