I am a naturalist with a focus on zoology, and enjoy sharing my love of the animal kingdom with lifelong learners of all ages through various education and outreach activities both online and off. I especially enjoy connecting children to nature, and keeping their natural scientific sparks lit! I have specialized experience in ornithology and birding. I am a Flying WILD certified educator, have a certificate in bird biology from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as well as written species accounts for their Neotropical Birds Online website, and completed the Certified Bird Feeding Specialist program through Wild Birds Unlimited. I also focused on birds for my graduate research project (West Nile Virus in corvids), and help monitor birds at my local nature center as part of their eBird Project Feederwatch program. I also have nearly two decades experience as a home education advocate, including homeschooling my own children from preschool through high school. I am a big proponent of flexible learning, individualized education, and supporting fellow neurodiverse learners, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me with requests for accommodations or additional resources. We all learn in our own way and time, but everyone should have the chance to learn about how cool animals are! 😎
Lesson materials are provided for free via the classroom, either as downloadable printables/files or links to online resources (web pages, videos, articles, etc.).
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
All my zoology classes are open to discussing animal anatomy, including the reproductive system, and natural behaviors and bodily functions, including mating, using proper scientific terms!
