JoAnn Moore, a biology teacher at Gig Harbor High School, has been selected along with 13 other educators from around the country as this year’s National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellows.
The fellowships are awarded to teachers who best demonstrate excellence in geography education. Moore has developed field-based high school courses that focus on stream and forest ecology as well as marine biology. She spends her summers teaching field-based continuing education courses for teachers and running a middle school marine science camp.
The selected educators will embark this summer on an Arctic expedition.
