Crystal is an experienced classroom science educator, currently a science coordinator for San Diego COE, and brings an environmental literacy lens to all of her work as a statewide leader in NGSS education. Crystal will help teachers, and their allies, find relevant place-based environmental phenomena that, in turn, engages and motivates students to act on local environmental issues. Come prepared to ask questions, think, and participate in this lively and significant conversation.
