Janet Mulder is in her 15th year of teaching science at Bexley High School. She learned about Feed the World from her colleague Scott Logsdon. Her favorite part of the 2 day Feed the World workshop was “trying out all the different activities that are fantastic, engaging, and applicable for all levels of science at the high school level. Often, the units are not at an honors/AP level, so this was great to see.”
She said that including agriculture in her science lessons helps her to make real-world connections to the biology students are learning. “Especially for students at our school; we are a suburb and often times many students have little connection or context of the importance/impact of agriculture.”
Mulder has two young children, and she enjoys spending time with them, reading, baking and being outside together.
