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!  

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 any questions or requests for additional resources.  We all learn in our own way and time, but everyone should have the chance to learn about how cool animals are!
Additional resources will be posted in the classroom after the live session ends to help further your study of the species introduced in class -- students are encouraged to view these and use the classroom board to ask any additional questions they'd like about the material.
Any supplementary 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.).
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 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!
(Also for this class specifically, it should be noted that Komodo Dragons in particular are quite voracious in their eating habits, so sensitive viewers who may be disturbed by footage of prey animals being killed and eaten, blood, etc., may want to skip those particular videos.)
