Supporting Excellent Science Teaching for Georgia

Elementary Representative: Karen Garland

Anyone who knows me, knows that science is my passion! For 20 years I have worked to make this content area much more accessible for both formal and nonformal educators, as science should not be feared, but encouraged. Because of the years that I have facilitated statewide professional development trainings for K – 16 educators, written curricula, and served on numerous boards and committees, I understand the value of targeting pre-service teachers and the importance of on-going training for veteran teachers. I am a certified Project WET Facilitator, Project WILD Facilitator, Project Learning Tree Facilitator, Monarchs in the Classroom Facilitator, National Wildlife Federation’s Discovering Schoolyard Habitats and Wolf Tracks Facilitator, World Wildlife Fund’s Biodiversity Basics Facilitator, Leopold Education Project Facilitator, Our Shared Forest Facilitator, Flying Wild Facilitator, and a Georgia Master Gardener. I am currently teaching the Science Endorsement in Cherokee County through North Georgia RESA.I worked for a statewide environmental advocacy organization for 11 years, before becoming a formal educator.
