Teacher, PRNSA California naturalist, runner, explorer, life long learner

I have been a teacher my entire career. My teaching interests and values focus on science literacy, social and environmental justice, and eco-local literacy. I began teaching immediately after college via Teach for America in Compton, CA. I taught middle school 7 and 8 grade science. I then moved north to the Bay Area and I have been teaching in an independent high school for 20+ years. I teach Biology, Advanced Biology, Environmental Science, & Chemistry. I teach an expeditionary blendEd online course called Wilderness Studies that immerses students in wilderness areas like the Great Burn Recommended Wilderness & PT. Reyes National Seashore and encourages participants to think about the value of, history and future of public lands. I have also developed and taught an online blended field ecology course for high school students. I participated in PRNSA's California naturalist program in August 2016. My goal is to help foster natural history education and empower youth to get outside, ask questions and learn about their environments. I am eager to continue developing my naturalist skills.
