I started off as an outdoor enviromental education instructor, then moved into working as a scientist for the national park service. I have taught everything from a self-contained elementary class of 4th, 5th and 6th grade students in a rural classroom in a two room school, to teaching in an upscale suburban middle school as an Earth and Space Science and Life Science teacher. I also have two special needs adopted sons that my husband and I homeschool.
Student Centered inquiry learning

I have an undergraduate degree from Colorado State University in Environmental Education. My masters degree is in Middle School Science and Elementary Education from Eastern Oregon University.
