Kim currently teaches 7th and 8th grade science at Tierra del Sol Middle School in Lakeside, CA. Originally from Chicago, she moved to San Diego in order to enjoy the outdoors. This is Kim’s eighth year teaching. She has a Masters in Teaching and became interested in environmental education while working toward her second Masters degree in Biology at Miami University, Project Dragonfly. The Global Field Program (GFP) brings master’s degree candidates, scientists, educators, community leaders, and others together at conservation hotspots in Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas for firsthand experience with inquiry-driven education, environmental stewardship, and global understanding.
“If we are going to save environmentalism and the environment, we must also save an endangered indicator species: the child in nature.”
