Fun Fact: “Years ago I lived in a tent, outside, for 9 months straight! I’ve lead overnight youth backpacking retreats and native edible plant walks. I love survivalism and outdoor education, and would love to do more research on the effects of plant interaction and the learning process.”

“I love teaching at EIS. The students, the staff, the building itself all radiate an excitement and curiosity for the world around them. Giving children the space to come into their own as scientists is something I feel grateful to be a part of. This was also the first neighborhood I lived in when I moved to San Diego, so it feels like home.”
