Outdoor pedagogy and thoughts about host
I try to make a difference in students’ lives by exposing them to a variety of hands-on and field experiences in science.
[The HOST Program] was a real eye-opener and a great opportunity. I learned a lot about my environment and developed a love for hummingbirds. I not only learned new strategies and activities for engaging my sutdents, but I also learned how to make science fun and meaningful again.
