TEACHING EXPERIENCE

David Zelenka began developing interactive media in 1993 under the company name Interactive Earth. Since that time he has developed web sites, graphic design, educational materials, and released books that reflect the great creativity evident in both human endeavor and the natural world. David's skill as a naturalist, artist, educator and designer find their roots in a deep curiosity and love for the natural world. He has worked to promote stewardship of a variety of ecosystems in the United States as a multimedia contractor, seasonal park ranger, wilderness guide, skills center teacher, and curriculum developer. His recent endeavors have been to encourage critical-thinking in education and to foster genuine interactions between students, their communities, and the environment.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Preparing students to face the challenges of our world with an upbeat attitude is my purpose as a teacher. In class, students are outfitted with the knowledge, tools, skills, and habits to support ongoing learning and growth of character. I emphasize an engagement focused classroom. The teacher and students alike help each other to foster a keen sense of enthusiasm, creative curiosity, and optimism. They engage together, meeting challenges individually and collectively. Students develop a character platform upon which is built success and happiness that reaches well beyond the classroom. The classroom acts as a well-oiled company of learners trooping through the landscape.
