I've just finished my two years of teaching science in St. Louis, and I am planning on switching out of teaching at least for the short term. Right now I'm planning my next step which i think will involve going back to school possibly in urban forestry or something related.
My experience in the Environmental Studies Program developed my critical mind and love of science. Environmental studies gave me exposure to a wide range of disciplines and allowed me to pursue the study of a wide variety of topics connected by the common thread of my own personal interest. I feel well prepared to connect the high school curriculum with the exciting and pressing issues that affect all of us today and hope to inspire another generation of scientists capable of understanding our role in a changing world.
