Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies not only in abilities, but also in learning styles. My role as a teacher is to give students the tools with which to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. To accomplish this goal, I will teach to the needs of each student so that all learners can feel capable and successful.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Pace University with a minor in Environmental Studies. I then pursued a Master’s Degree in Environmental Education at Nova Southeastern University. I firmly believe that field-based education supplements classroom teaching in a myriad of ways. In addition to formal schooling, I have also participated in many hands-on training, seminars, and projects.
I have extensive experience working with students in the classroom as an adjunct instructor and frequently incorporate field work into my courses to provide the real world experience to students as well.
I volunteer with numerous community and environmental groups/projects.
