  • Mike Szydlowski: Science Teacher, Trip Coordinator, and Exemplary TSS Partner

    It's summer again, and we're kicking the season off with three weeks of Field Education with students from the Columbia, Missouri Public School District. To celebrate, we're re-running an interview we published last summer between Teton Science Schools’ Senior Director of Marketing and Communications Nick Delmolino and Mike Szydlowski, Science Coordinator for the Columbia School District. This is Mike's tenth year facilitating and managing trips for schools form Missouri with Teton Science Schools' Field Education program; over the past nine years, Mike has brought over 1,750 students to TSS. Mike is a long-time partner – and one of our all-time favorite chaperones – and we’re delighted to highlight his perspective on TSS, the impact that his coordination and leadership has on hundreds of students every year, and his boundless energy for all things science. Thank you, Mike, for your partnership and dedication.
