I am a retired Earth Science Teacher, who taught for over 30 years  on Long Island, N.Y. My Masters in Environmental Science led me to some amazing opportunities with Earthwatch and the Sierra Club when I was younger. My passion for environmentalism led to the  Green Glove Music Video - (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vaw4691m7k) project which was one of the highlights of my teaching career. I have always been concerned about local and global actions and the music video we created served to tie our local goals of recycling awareness to our global goal of raising awareness of the Yasuni Rainforest and the plight of the Waorani Indians who live there. Last year I was lucky enough to attend Climate Reality training with V.P. Al Gore and his amazing staff in South Africa.  Soon after, I took part in a great documentary that I hope will be released soon. In my spare time, I work with Operation SPLASH - a local environmental group dedicated to cleaning up Long Island's south shore waterways and their educational outreach team and with the National Environmental Education Foundation's Teacher Advisory Committee.  I enjoy helping to produce 30 minute TV shows for Public Access TV (such as https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10200376510828639&set=a.1194616338838.30724.1031323564&type=1)and presenting to student and community groups. I am a 3D Printing enthusiast and a creator of "magical" teaching tools for educators (http://www.teachersource.com/product/perplexing-puzzle-paradox/new-products http://www.teachersource.com/product/magic-kits/new-products). I am eternally optimistic and very much concerned about science denial and the corruption of big money in politics today and the misinformation that goes along with it.
