A Note from Michelle Ramos – the NEW EEAI Program Coordinator
Hello EEAI Community!
I am originally from the Southside of Chicago and grew up in the Ashburn neighborhood. Studied Therapeutic Recreation at Southern Illinois University where I fell in love with camping and the outdoors. My previous work experience was at a nonprofit where we focused on Sports Based Youth Development and Social Emotional Learning for K-8 youth attending Chicago Public Schools.
In my spare time you can find me exploring the outdoors, camping and kayaking or spending time with loved ones.
I am excited to join the world of Environmental Education and get to work sharing some amazing programs with our stakeholders. I am looking forward to building a more extensive EEAI Facilitator Network to better serve all IL communities and I a can’t wait to work with IL educators on how to implement more environmental education.
