Originally from the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota, Anna moved to the Tetons to complete the Teton Science Schools Graduate Program, a year-long teaching intensive based in Kelly, Wyoming. Since then, Anna has taught many grades K-12 in nonformal field settings, public schools, and progressive educational institutions, finally joining TVCS in 2013. With a BS in Conservation Biology from the University of Minnesota and a MA in Experiential Education from Prescott College, Anna aims to facilitate student-centered projects that immerse students into their local environment and community. In the classroom, Anna creates collaborative and interdisciplinary educational experiences that challenge her students to think critically and creatively, all while considering individual students’ learning, social, and emotional needs. When not teaching or thinking about teaching, Anna can be found exploring mountains on skis, a bike, or with a large pack on, and almost always accompanied by her dog.
