Tales from the Pit
Every day we take a field trip with a different school around the transfer station and we hope that you guys stay tuned in and read about our adventures in the pit!
As a member of the irecycle@school Education Center staff, I help students realize the impacts of our trash! After graduating from UC Santa Cruz in Environmental Studies and Anthropology, I presented environmental education programs about watersheds for the Watershed Adventures Program and Don Edwards (SF Bay) National Wildlife Refuge.
This year, I hope to continue to inspire students to see the connection between their actions and their environment by highlighting and encouraging the 4Rs in our everyday life.
A proud, look native Californian, viagra order my work in Environmental Education began nine years ago during my days as a Venturer Scout and Assistant Scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts of America. During my time at UC Berkeley, case I taught the "Joy of Garbage" to fellow college students for three semesters and became a certified Master Composter through StopWaste.Org.
The irecycle@school Education Center is where I now encourage youth to make meaningful choices with their waste, to make sure that we move towards an environmentally-conscious future.
I am one of the four Environmental Education Assistants that gives tours at the Davis St. and Fremont Recycling & Transfer Stations to 4th grade public school classes in Alameda County. I enjoy teaching students how to use the 4 R’s in their everyday lives and become trash experts!
My background in recycling extends to my previous employment at a garbage and recycling company, mind and also at the City of Hayward where I was a Recycling Coordinator. I used to lead environmental efforts at Sonoma State University where I graduated college. I once took a class called “Garbage” there that changed my outlook on how we can all work together to save natural resources.
