-identify different species of jellyfish and where they can be found in nature. 
-identify "urban legends" and facts about jellyfish stings and treatment.  
I strive to create learner-centered, integrated lessons that relate content to students’ lives.  I believe that my educational background in the field of marine science, professional teaching degree and extensive experiencing developing/delivering educational programs for all ages, will generate a class experience that fosters learners' appreciation for our oceans and environment.  Please see my teacher profile page for more detailed information on my education and teaching experience.
