Docent - Hidden Villa Environmental Education Program

I facilitate students' exploration of the organic farm and garden, and surrounding wilderness areas. We mainly work with small groups of 2nd-6th grade students and aim to incorporate relevant NGSS concepts. I also design classroom curriculum for teachers to use after the experience to enhance student experience and understanding.

Teaching Assistant - School of Earth, Energy, and Environmental Sciences

I am a teaching assistant for two classes, Biology and Global Change and The California Gold Rush. My responsibilities include holding office hours, grading and mediating debates. I really enjoy helping my students understand the concepts covered in class and hearing about their ideas and interests.

Educator AND TRIP LEADER - STANFORD OUTDOOR EDUCATION

My involvement with Stanford Outdoor education began my freshman year and continues through to today. I value the amount of time I have been able to spend in an educational role. I have taught four outdoor skills classes and two five day Outdoor Leadership Practicums. My favourite way to being the year is with Stanford Pre-Orientation Trips where I have lead three generations of SPOTlets (incoming freshmen) on a five-day backpacking trip to begin their Stanford careers. I continue to lead for Stanford Outdoor Trips including pioneering bouldering trips and leading cross-country ski trips.
