I have been working with the K-12 Team since the spring of 2022, and as an undergraduate senior studying Sociology and Education, I enjoy helping make science more accessible through the Lab! Growing up in New York City, my opportunities to interact with the natural environment were limited, but coming to Ithaca as a student has widened my appreciation for the outdoors. I seek to make outdoor education an engaging endeavor for teachers, parents, and children alike through my responsibilities with the Lab, ranging from making social media posts to writing curriculum. As an aspiring elementary school teacher myself, this is a valuable experience for me to practice my skills, gain new ones, and connect with others who are also passionate about education.
