Gina has been teaching inquiry-based science for nine years. She started out as a teacher naturalist at Great Smoky Mountains Institute at Tremont. While there she worked with adult, college, and school-age groups to connect people and nature through immersive outdoor science experiences. She brought her love of hands-on science into the middle school classroom at a charter school in North Carolina where she taught for four years. She now lives in South Korea and works at St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju, an American international school. She is pursuing a doctorate in educational leadership through East Carolina University.
