  • The Yellowstone Wolves: Reflections on Objectivity in Science Education

    A particularly memorable teaching moment for me came during a camping trip to Yellowstone National Park in late June 2015 with a group of St. Louis middle school students. We hiked up to Trout Lake in Lamar Valley during our second day in the field, and I took the opportunity to teach about trophic cascades. I wanted to help the students build a deeper appreciation of the place they were visiting, the same place where wolves were re-introduced in 1995.

  • Lessons in Place

    Ask every member of the Teton Science Schools’ Field Education team why they do what they do, and you’re likely to find yourself peering into a constellation of diverse personal motives. Many will share stories of childhood adventures in nature and their wish to share these experiences with another generation.

  • A Change in Perspective

    This past October, I had the pleasure of working with a group of 8th grade students from Berkeley Carroll, a school in Brooklyn, NY. As an environmental field educator in the Tetons, I traditionally teach middle school students from the Wyoming, Salt Lake City, and Idaho areas.

  • From the Silver Fridge: Hummus

    Hummus is one of the more popular lunch items in the Teton Science Schools’ dining lodge, both in our lunch bar, where students pack their field lunches, and in the silver fridge, where staff scrounge for leftovers and sandwich makings for the day.
