Environmental advocate passionate about educating others about the importance of the natural world

I enjoy having discussions with my students and I ask a lot of thought-provoking questions. A typical class with me would involve some teaching and lots of discussions. My goal is to help students think critically about subject matter and improve their problem-solving skills.

Background

I am the Founder and President of the Connecting Communities Association. I have experience teaching and tutoring English as a Second Language to youth and adults. I have done outdoor environmental education and I have created a Sustainability Education Program to educate people about the importance of sustainable development.
