Hello, my name is Brenda. I’m a former geologist turned middle school science teacher; I currently work for the Fairbanks public schools. I have lived in Alaska for 10 years, but I don’t know a whole lot about the flora of the state. Back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth and I was still an undergraduate, I did minor in environmental science and took a number of biology classes, but it’s been a hot minute. I’m hoping to refresh my memory with this class and add Alaska-specific knowledge to my skill set. The class was billed as completely asynchronous, so I’m a little sad to see specific weekly deadlines, as I am quite busy this summer. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with everyone else.
I do not have a favorite flower, but I really like all the irises along the sides of the highway here in the Interior.
