Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Advanced Level
I studied agriculture and ecology in my self-designed major at Hampshire College. Hampshire College specializes in a learner lead and experiential pedagogy which aligns with Outschool's values. I studied how humans interact with nature and the environment and took courses ranging from soil science to entomology. I am a self-described ecology nerd and take pride in knowing the local plants and animals of my region. I have taken many plant walks with professional herbalists and I am familiar with the wild edible and medicinal plants of New England.

All classes are based on the accepted consensus of the secular scientific community, and may include discussions of evolution by natural selection, the cellular and hormonal mechanics of sexual and asexual reproduction, and other aspects of studying living systems.
Procreate and Sketchbook are digital drawing apps that can be downloaded for use on a tablet and are only for personal use for the learner. They do not require user accounts, and are not required for the class.
