2018 Southern EE'er of the Year - Jane Mattione
Jane has worked for Pathfinder Ranch for 3 years now, plus her work previously at other OE programs. She has been a dedicated member of our community and a big proponent of AEOE. She loves to teach, improve her craft and also help others to improve their teaching skills. As a result, she was asked to attend the BEETLES Leadership Institute to help train the rest of our staff and future staff on BEETLES teaching tools, which we have incorporated into our curriculum with her help. She has also begun the process of implementing a new citizen science program into our curriculum using tablets, which has been a phenomenal addition to our overall program.
She has been in this field as an educator for many years, she has a knack for teaching, and loves working with youth. She constantly promotes conservation awareness with clients and is an amazing educator. Everyone who shadows her classes comes away with something new and cool to use in their own classes. She has a wealth of knowledge and is a dedicated individual in this field.
