Description

Class Experience

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!  

One of my primary research interests is Australasian fauna, and in particular the monotremes and marsupials.  Monotremes are an evolutionarily distinct branch on the tree of life, with the platypus and echidna the only surviving members of an ancient mammalian lineage -- nothing else left on earth is quite like them, which is why I like them so much and love teaching others about them!  

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 weekly lesson materials will be free and provided by the instructor. These will include both directly downloadable printables and files, and links to additional online resources (web pages, videos, articles, etc.) which will also be collected and organized on a curated Pinterest board.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This class will provide information on animal anatomy, including the reproductive system, and natural behaviors, including mating.  (I know I give this standard disclaimer for every zoology class, but it is especially relevant here -- monotremes have some unique anatomy, and there will be visuals!)
