Class Experience

I am a zoologist who enjoys sharing my love of the animal kingdom with lifelong learners of all ages. I especially enjoy connecting children to nature, and keeping their natural scientific sparks lit! 

Besides the fact that tapirs have always been amongst my most favorite animals, one of my primary research interests is conservation biology, and unfortunately all living tapir species are currently under threat of extinction. World Tapir Day is a great event for those of us who study and care about these unique ungulates to share our knowledge and raise awareness about their plight.  

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! 😎
All lesson materials will be provided for free via the classroom, either as downloadable printables/files or links to online resources (web pages, videos, articles, etc.). Free downloadable World Tapir Day goodies will also be provided for this class.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class will discuss natural animal behaviors and bodily functions, including mating and pooping! (Tapir poop is actually very important, as you will find out. 😉)
