I landed a pretty amazing job with a wonderful non-profit environmental education organization. I started with the school year and jumped in full force. It is just starting to slow down and I can catch my breath. We teach 5th grade science curricula using nature as our guide. All of our expeditious are in wilderness areas or parks, where the kids get to experience learning outside. We work with over 25 schools in NC and SC, meeting with each school 6 times over the course of the school year. It is one of the most meaningful jobs that I have ever had. I truly think we make a difference with children.

During a stream survey, we caught these awesome water bugs
Two lined salamander
We built boats to learn about forces and motion.
We always find surprises on every expedition
