In September 2011 Sarah Crowley joined the ARCUS staff as Education Project Manager. Sarah replaces Kristin Timm, who received a fellowship to pursue her graduate studies at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
Selected from a highly competitive field of applicants, Sarah stood out as uniquely qualified for the position. She has a teaching career in experiential education, a graduate residency in environmental education, and for the past three years worked as a science educator at the Murie Science and Learning Center in Denali National Park and Preserve. While there she trained staff on park science and climate change programs and developed teacher-training courses integrating classroom teaching and polar science topics.
At ARCUS she will team with Janet Warburton in guiding the development and management of the PolarTREC program. We are fortunate to have Sarah's talents, energy, and intelligence as an addition to our already highly talented and efficient staff. I know you will enjoy interacting with her as much as we enjoy working with her. Welcome, Sarah!
