Most of Teri's career has been as a formal and informal educator spanning four decades. After teaching first, second, fifth, and eighth grades in California and Colorado, she transitioned to informal education in 2002 as manager of the National Center for Atmospheric Research's Public Visitor Program, creating field trips, tours, outreach programs, curriculum, an educational web presence, and development of digital exhibit and tour experiences. In 2012, she accepted a position as the head of technology for UCAR Science Education and was responsible for creating the new UCAR Connect program for its 110 + university members. This was in addition to ongoing educational pursuits on grants, workshops, newsletters, webcasts, video productions, and in the development of UCAR Live for internal and external audiences. Teri also has worked for NOAA for the past 10+ years mentoring educators selected for their Planet Stewards Program and producing NOAA's biweekly education-focused newsletter to 30K+ recipients nationally. Most recently she was the program manager at the University of Colorado's Sustainability Innovation Lab, now the Mortenson Center for Global Engineering. Teri has lived in Boulder since arriving in 1997 from California with her husband and three children. Today, she remains in Boulder with her husband, Greg, and black lab, Cash. Her kids, now adults, reside in Massachusetts and Colorado.
