Katie Krafte

Middle School Science Teacher from Chapel Hill, North Carolina

"I find the ecology so fascinating and could read about jaguars, monkeys, caiman, etc. forever and be very happy. But to implement real change in communities around the world, we need to understand, appreciate, and work with people. The people I met had such a profound impact on me. They shaped our knowledge, our course, and our experience in such an amazing way."
