Why I work at Ocean Institute: The Ocean Institute is a dream setting for an educator who is passionate about education, research, and the environment. Having worked in education for over twenty years, I have seen the power of real-world, hands-on learning experiences and the benefits of connecting young minds to cutting edge research through age-appropriate lessons. The Ocean Institute provides a context like no other for developing curiosity and the habits of mind that will help visitors see the world and themselves in a new way. I work here because the people, programs, and unique resources provide the best context to practice my passion and contribute to the ocean.
