Lower School Science Teacher
As a sixth generation Finger Lakes resident, albeit in a neighboring county, one could say the region is truly the fabric of my genetic code. I am so delighted to be teaching at New Roots. After 18 years as a science educator in a New York State public high school, it is a remarkably refreshing experience to finally be able to engage in education the way it should be constructed – organically, holistically and sustainably with underpinnings rooted in social and environmental justice. Having spent the better part of my adult avocational life deeply involved in social and environmental justice work, becoming an educator at New Roots is almost a dream, being able to merge vocation and avocation to help nurture the change makers this battered world needs.
