As a three-year Technology Fellowship recipient at Columbia University, I instructed one-on-one and held seminars for faculty, staff and graduate students in their development, pedagogy and design processes of curriculum content. In addition to this Fellowship, I served as a private tutor in math, writing and science to a PS163 student on the Upper West Side. We prepared for success in the New York State Standards testing. This long-term position expanded to monitoring a small child’s well-being and safety amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City. I am a committed and seriously passionate teacher who can promise longevity in the investment of those who make up your community.
In the wilds of Alaska I was a project leader and instructor under the Alaska Center for the Environment and worked with children, ages 8 and 9, as they explored their native and natural surroundings. There, I taught plant biology, environmental awareness, digital photography, leave-no-trace, art lessons, kayaking and canoeing. I am confident to manage various aspects of your instructional program. I enjoy working with all personalities and age groups, and am patient and sensitive to their specific needs and interests.
As a Plant Biology Teaching Assistant at Lake Forest College, in addition to writing and facilitating difficult written and laboratory tests, I organized and led students on various specific and in-depth environmental excursions, such as to the Ottawa National Forest in Wisconsin as well as the Gulf area of New Orleans, including the Bayou estuary, after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. My experiences have taken me from supervising children from grizzly bears in the wilderness of Alaska, to the shores of Lake Michigan, the oily waters of New Orleans and the busy streets of New York City.
