FET Teacher Whitney Samuels-Hoffmeister

As an aquarium educator, I bring a unique passion for FET education to the forefront. My academic journey began with a focused exploration of Oceanography during my undergraduate studies, paving the way for a master’s degree in marine science with a specialized focus on Ecotoxicology. My love for continual learning is not only a personal commitment but a driving force behind my dedication to sharing profound insights about our oceans. Through my role as an aquarium teacher, I strive to inspire and inform, fostering a deeper understanding of the intricate ecosystems that make our marine environments so fascinating. Whether it's unveiling the wonders of marine life or delving into the complexities of the ocean, I am passionate about empowering others with knowledge and fostering a sense of responsibility towards the well-being of our oceans.
