I am passionate about teaching, and have strong skill and experience facilitating hands-on learning with K-12 students, undergraduates, graduate students, and members of the public. Over the last several years I re-developed and taught three courses in UMaine's undergraduate Sustainable Agriculture program, and was most recently a Lecturer in UMaine's Ecology and Environmental Sciences (EES) program. Although I am not teaching currently, I continue to advise undergraduates in the EES Program.
