Twelve years experience as a teacher-naturalist at a public school outdoor education center. More recently, 20 years experience at a public high school as a science teacher, and 4 years as an ecology instructor for elementary students at a local summer resort.
I enjoy teaching with hands-on, minds-on, experiential learning that include lots of visual aids such as demos, photos, slides, maps, and diagrams. Live animals, labs, models, replicas and natural specimens are incorporated into my lessons whenever possible.
