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. 
A one-page notes handout will be provided 24 hours before the start of class. Answer keys to self-assessments will be provided after course completion.  
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
