Expeditions come in many shapes, sizes, and varieties. My passion is being in the field, on location, experiencing the concepts we teach in the classroom in person.
I want to bring teachers and students to the field and the field to students and teachers.
Let's expedition together!
Beginning in August 2018: I joined the field team for The Boiling River Project, under the direction of Andres Ruzo.
It all began in July 2017, when I wrote a proposal to complete field science as a new approach to teacher professional development. I won the award and associated grant money and promptly joined The Boiling River Project Field Season 10 team.
Each June, I bring students to Key Largo to work with Coral Restoration Foundation, Reef Environmental Education Foundation, and MarineLab to complete fish surveys, reef restoration, and ecology studies.

Each year, we raise brook trout in our classroom from egg to fry stage. In the spring, we bring them to Waynesboro, VA to be released in a fresh water stream. The brook trout are water quality indicator species in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. By studying their species density, we can track the health of the watershed. Raising them in our classroom helps us understand the delicate balance necessary for their survival and boosts their population density in the watershed for longitudinal study.
Join me as I share stories, experiences, and inspiration from expeditions through this podcast.
