Green Energy and Sustainability
COLLEGE EXPERIENCE: Wittenberg University – BA Biology University of New Mexico – MA Secondary Education
INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE: I have spent the last 22 years teaching science and technology courses before joining the team at Northeast Early College. I am passionate about involving students in career and technical education. I am an amateur gardener. I have worked to create a school-based community garden at my last school and have personally pursued a certificate in market farming.
WHAT EXCITES ME ABOUT THIS WORK: There is no Planet B! I want to grow the next generation of solution makers – the students that will go out and change the world. Issues of sustainability in clean energy, food security and water face our global society. I want to inspire the future engineers that will develop balanced solutions to preserve our environment and meet economic needs, while ensuring that all people have equitable access to healthy food, clean air and water and a safe place to live.
