AMY BIASUCCI earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resources Management from Cook College, Rutgers University. She has been in education for seven years as a teacher of Advanced Placement environmental science and marine science. During college, Amy traveled to and studied the natural resources of Alaska and Newfoundland. Through these experiences, she discovered a love of exploration and travel which she tries to instill in her students. Each summer Amy spends a month or more traveling, with the help of grants, to various countries and ecosystems so that she can improve her field research techniques and stay involved in current ecological research, both of which she brings back to the classroom. Amy's teaching philosophy is to demonstrate to students that learning is enjoyable and exciting so that when they leave her classroom, they are inspired to learn more.
