Hello, I'm Leah! I am a 26-year-old Chicago transplant and Smith College graduate with degrees in Gender Studies and Environmental Science. I ground learning/teaching in a pedagogy of creative problem solving and life-long inquisitiveness. Subsequently, predicated on fostering trusting relationships, I believe learning can be mutually beneficial for both student and teacher.

Most recently, I worked as a researcher at a Chicago union, and as a community organizer.

Science can often seem inaccessible to students, particularly students who additionally struggle in math, & is framed as disconnected from English & Social Sciences. In getting to explore and further my studies in Oceanography, Environmental Science, Geography, & Geology, I have continued to think about how to make science feel tangible, applicable, and grounded in the exploration of natural & political worlds. I participated in an international environmental science and water conservation program in 2017 & I am currently looking to pursue higher education in Social Geography & GIS.

In addition to proficient reading & writing being integral to nearly everything I have done in College & in my post-graduate jobs, I also have experience providing peer-to-peer writing support at the College level. In this position, it was important to me to have conversations about what outcome students wer
