Lydia Geschiere, Associate Teacher

Pronouns: she/her/hers


Lydia has designed and taught environmental education and interdisciplinary programs in a variety of capacities, internationally and in the United States. She comes from a background in environmental science, particularly marine ecology, and began her career pursuing opportunities to share with young people the joy of the beach and the ocean. Her experiences lent to a growing interest in how different learners experience the outdoors and develop relationships with the world around them, and a passion for pursuing justice and equity in informal learning spaces.


She brought this interest to the Pacific Northwest to join the IslandWood EEC program and get her master’s in education at the University of Washington, where she studied transformative science pedagogies. She is particularly interested in the role imagination plays in cultivating relationships and shaping just futures, and is inspired by what we can learn from nature about sustainability and our interconnectivity. She currently designs and teaches programming for pre-college environmental leadership courses at Brown University, and also writes curriculum and teaches in afterschool spaces in Seattle.


Lydia will be teaching Natural History and Ecology this fall, and is delighted to play a role in developing graduate students’ relationship to this place.
