Tracy Wirak-Cassidy she/her/hers

I grew up hiking and exploring the Montana wilderness and from an early age I knew I wanted to work with children. I attended the University of Montana to pursue a degree in Elementary Education and Environmental Studies and spent many summers working at outdoor education facilities including; the Teton Science School, Montana Natural History Center and the Glacier Institute. After completing my first teaching position in Montana I hopped on my bike and pedaled to Alaska with my sister. I fell in love with Haines, Alaska and founded a place-based summer camp, Haines Science Camp that I ran for 3 years before handing off the camp to a local museum and beginning a teaching position at the Haines School. Eventually, the pull to be working with kids outdoors drew me out of the classroom and back into the environmental education field. I currently works for Takshanuk Watershed Council as the Education Coordinator and provide watershed education to preschool through high school aged students in Haines, Klukwan, and Mosquito Lake in Alaska.
