Have you met Celina (she/her), our science instructor?! "Why do I teach? Because exploring the natural world with my students is the best! I love looking closer, getting curious, questioning, and making connections about the things we encounter, and this is something our young people do naturally. Our students are awesome and I'm lucky to get to work with them."

Have you met Rachel (she/her), Armadillo's new Executive Director? When asked why she went into education she said "to create connections with student's who don't feel like there is an academic future for them because I never felt like I had a future in academics or that my specific talents were valued in school. I want to celebrate every success and do it through saying 'yes' to the crazy ideas because those are the moments where learning is really happening". Stop by the temporary office and say 'hi' to our new Exec.
