About Lisa

I have been teaching environmental education at Blandy Experimental Farm in Boyce Virginia for the past 8 years. Most of my teaching here has been with elementary and middle school students with an emphasis on soils, rocks, water, ecology, trees and plants, all things environmental. I teach through inquiry methods and use the outdoors as my classroom as much as possible.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching informal, environmental education for the past 8 years. I see over 5,000 elementary aged students each year at the State Arboretum of Virgina, Blandy Experimental Farm and field research station of UVA. I am knowledgeable of the Virginia SOL and teach according to the parents/student needs.

My specialty is ecology which includes abiotic and biotic environmental resources. Soils, rocks, water, plants and animals and the human impact on all of the above. The natural world is my passion.

I have a B.S. from the School of Forestry at West Virginia University and I have an M.S. in Science Education from Montana State University. I am a certified facilitator for Project Wet, Project Learning Tree, Project Underground and Flying Wild. I am a Master Gardener and I am a certified in the National Association of Interpretation.
