Class of 2004
Major/Minor: Environmental Studies/Elementary Education

I loved WAC! I have so many great memories. I would love to go back in a heartbeat!

How has your liberal arts education influenced you? How do you apply your LAE in your current career?

Being a TAD (think and doing) teacher, I don’t teach just one subject; the units I have taught my students range from entomology to photography to the importance of buying and eating local. My co-teacher (another WAC grad, April Todd) and I use our liberal arts background when we plan and execute our units of study and lessons. With April being an English, Anthropology and Secondary Education person and me being an Environmental Studies and Elementary Education person, we are a great team that compliments each others strengths and weaknesses perfectly! We bring the liberal arts philosophy into all of our units!

Who was your favorite faculty member?

Hands down Dr. Munson. I looked forward to seeing him on campus and always being greeted with a “Hello, Ms. Bishop”. Traveling to Bermuda with him for a summer class was great. I especially loved having the opportunity to work with him after I graduated and I was working for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and he came out on a trip and another former student of his and I was able to be his teacher!

What is your favorite Washington College memory?

I loved WAC! I have so many great memories. I would love to go back in a heartbeat! I loved Birthday Balls and having the opportunity to see your professors and Dr. Toll out and about. I also loved seeing Dr. Toll in the dining hall and randomly sitting down with students and talking with us! May Day, War on the Shore, snow days, Alpha Chi. It was a great 4 years!
