Curriculum Development

I love teaching kids of all ages to respect and appreciate the natural world around them. I have extensive experience developing and implementing natural and environmental science curricula in both classroom and camp settings. My lesson plans are activity-based, and are meant to bring kids face to face with nature.

Interactive Presentations

I also have experience giving brief presentations to families using program animals and museum specimens. Having a live animal ambassador or a real museum specimen to interact with incites curiosity in audience members and encourages them to engage with the topic at hand.
