After college, I became disheartened that environmental education was not the career path that I wanted to continue. Every position I saw offered low wages, part-time, or volunteer work. Then I found Westgate Community School (WCS), a K–12 charter school unlike any other. Environmental Education and Service Learning are just two pieces of Westgate’s whole child education that I lead as the Environmental Education Coordinator. I take care of goats, chickens, barn cats, and a snake daily. I teach topics about all things environmental. I am here to talk about my work at Westgate and explain why we must integrate environmental education into our public school systems.
