Favorite thing you like about your work:
Getting to know my students and seeing them progress over multiple years and express their personal science interests in projects and a STEM Fair.
Based on your own experience, what did you get out of your time at MOSS and why would you recommend it to someone else?
At MOSS I learned how to reach out to different students and communities (through outreach) and to adjust curriculum to meet what my group needed each week. In teaching, differentiation is a huge deal and MOSS helped with that by giving a strong foundation and then lots of experience practicing the same curriculum with many types of student groups. I loved the sense of place in McCall and then throughout Idaho - it's a hidden gem of hiking and wonderful small towns. I also made awesome friends and feel like I am part of a strong alumni community - our influence is growing and I see MOSS popping up more and more in the outdoor education world.
