This winter (23-24) is my second year as an AIARE instructor! I am based in Telluride, Colorado and work full time as a 6th Grade Science Teacher, where I get to use curiosity-guided and hands-on learning everyday! Last year I completed my ITC in Steamboat, CO, Ski Guide Course in Jackson, Wy, and Alpine Guide Course in RMNP. I am excited to pick up a few AIARE courses this winter after teaching over 8 courses last year.
