~As an educator I’ve had the opportunity to create and facilitate eco-based lessons for programs in the Bronx & Westchester. I enjoy guiding students of all ages through inquiry-based activities in the classroom & during in-field sessions, as they are able to work with information in theory and then in direct application of material. This form of cognitive-experiential learning personalizes the experience and helps with retention of information. ~ Nurse B.
