This year was an exciting year professionally for Anne, as she was named a 2017 National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellow for which she was able to go to Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland to explore the Arctic. Also, as a National Geographic Certified Educator Trainer and Ambassador, she has the honor of supporting teachers in creating a culture of exploration in their classrooms.

Anne is building a network of GLOBE-trained educators in South Dakota. GLOBE is an international science and education project, sponsored by NASA with support from NOAA and the National Science Foundation, which involves students in research through collecting and reporting Earth System’s data. She serves as the GLOBE US Partner Forum chair, a national advisory group to GLOBE.

Personally, Anne strives to live a life of experiences and exploration, trying new things, some of which work out (taking up yoga in the last year) and some of which don’t (running for City Commission).

She participated in least tern research in July, paddling 46 miles on the Cheyenne River in two days. Anne has introduced people to hiking, paddling, and primitive camping. Once she becomes more proficient at backpacking, she’ll introduce them to that as well. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
