Why I work at Ocean Institute: The Ocean Institute is a unique educational resource for our local community.  I have been involved with informal education since 2001 and believe strongly in the impact these types of learning experiences can have.  The scope of what the Ocean Institute is able to do in terms of teachable moments is special.  I have an opportunity to facilitate a student’s connection to the environment each and every day through science programming.  All Ocean Institute staff come to work full dedicated to mission and goals of the organization.  That is a special work environment.
