Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
summary of in-game features of Minecraft pufferfish (spawning, behavior, drops, etc.); basic zoology of the Tetraodontidae and Diodontidae (pufferfish and porcupinefish) 
I am a zoologist who enjoys sharing my love of the animal kingdom with lifelong learners of all ages through various education and outreach activities both online and off. I've also been playing video games since the first gen when they all used to look this pixelated... ;) 

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! 😎
