Izzy Handal

I am from Pennsylvania, and have just graduated from the University of St Andrews with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science and Geology. I learned to love nature through camping with my mom and skiing with my sister, and continued outdoor hobbies as I grew up. I found my love of teaching when I started teaching swim lessons and was an AmeriCorps member at TSS! This past year I have been a substitute Biology teacher at a local high school and have helped to organize beach clean ups with the students I teach. I am very passionate about conservation and feel that the best way to learn is through place-based education. In my free time you can find me on a long walk or run, a climb, or looking at big trees. I am super excited to be back at TSS to learn from my coworkers and be back in the Tetons!
