Originally from the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota, Anna moved to Jackson in 2010 to complete the Teton Science Schools Graduate Program, a year-long teaching intensive based in Kelly, Wyoming. With a BS in Conservation Biology from the University of Minnesota and a MA in Experiential Education from Prescott College, Anna aims to create educational experiences in her classroom (and beyond!) that are interdisciplinary, authentic, and place-based, all while considering individual students’ learning needs and styles. During Anna’s graduate work, she has focused on social-emotional learning and how it can influence academic success. Anna has taught many grades K-12 in nonformal field settings, public schools, and progressive educational institutions. Most recently, Anna taught Kindergarten at TVCS and served as Education Coordinator at Friends of the Teton River, managing and implementing the organization’s K-12 and teacher development programs. Anna also serves on the Board of Directors of the Idaho Environmental Education Association. When not working with students, Anna can be found exploring the bountiful wilderness areas of Idaho with her husband and two dogs.
