  • Telling Stories

    Stories can engage us and transform the way we look at the world and the people around us. Stories can also exclude and diminish those left out. My hope is that we can reconcile these two concepts by telling expansive and truth-seeking stories, stories that capture the imagination while building empathy for all players, stories that originate within our own perspective but link us to more.

  • The Hunt

    I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, where meat came from a Styrofoam container and milk from a carton. There are four generations between me and the last farmer in my family.

  • September Grizzlies

    We're rolling into Hayden Valley after a satisfying morning of elk bugling in the misty sagebrush plains just outside of Moose. It was a thrilling experience, but that was eight hours ago. As we made our way across the central Yellowstone Plateau, we saw a lot of lodgepole pine trees, but not a single mammal. I can sense my Wildlife Expedition guests wondering when we’re going to get around to the wolves and/or bears part of our “Wolf and Bear Expedition.”

    The layers of learning at Teton Science Schools are as complex and beautiful as the rock layers depicted on the geological maps of Jackson Hole. These layers of learning are the fabric of the TSS experience and a catalyst to the multiplier effect of the TSS mission.

  • Place-Based Education Symposium: Communities as Learning Environments

    As the emergence of personalized learning, project-based learning, and deeper learning increases, the time is right to connect learning to communities in authentic and meaningful ways. A place-based education approach can connect learning models, increase the power of our educational system, and provide a foundation for a thriving democracy.

  • We're All In!

    For the first time in Teton Science Schools' 49-year history, we are “all in” in supporting the organization philanthropically. By “we,” I mean parents of Teton Valley Community School and Journeys School students, as well as every full-time employee throughout the organization.
