My article in USA Today

Not trying to toot my own horn here, but I thought some of you might appreciate this article in USA Today:

We've been working on this LA pine breeding project in my classroom since 2016, and this year we finally managed to get fertile eggs and hatch 4 feisty little babies!

I keep a menagerie of various critters in my classroom and I'm stupid fortunate to teach where I do. My district not only tolerates my reptile eccentricities and allows me to keep them in my room, but they also let me offer "Critter Care" advisory sessions - basically a 30-min session in the morning where students learn the natural history and captive husbandry of the animals.

This kind of exposure has helped countless students get over their ophidiophobia, and I'm happy to say I've also inspired at least a few budding young herpers. That I can also help students make personal connections with endangered species and maybe go on to donate or help raise awareness about them is a huge bonus!
