How did you connect with Beyond Benign?
I began with Beyond Benign as a curriculum writer for Elementary Science. I then was asked to present at the MAST and NSTA conferences.
What first drew you into teaching and science education?
Love of teaching and a desire to make education exciting for children so they enjoy attending school.
What excites you most about teaching green chemistry?
Sustainable science and green chemistry are so important for us as stewards of the Earth. If I can make the children in my class aware of the need for making good choices as consumers, and as residents of this planet they will have a much brighter future for themselves and their children. By passing on this drive to other teachers, through Beyond Benign, we can reach more and more children.
