  • Biography
    I am the Senior Education Officer at the Green Bank Observatory.  I started out as a classroom science teacher and in 1987, I participated in a workshop at the Observatory that completely sold me on the value of authentic STEM experiences.   While i was in residence for two weeks, I used a radio telescope to explore a distant galaxy called M 87. I worked in a team with fellow teachers and was mentored by the scientific staff here at the Observatory.  Now, 30 years in to my job with the GBO,  I have had the privilege of creating similar opportunities for teachers, students and the public to gain first-hand experience in doing science.  

    I love this work, and I'm really happy to share my expertise with the First2 Network, and to continue to learn from you all!
