Elin, from Chicago, Illinois, saw the potential to harness passion in her students for learning about the natural world through field trips and hands-on experiences while teaching in Chicago Public Schools. This inspired Elin to complete her Master of Arts in Teaching in Museum Education at George Washington University in Washington D.C.. Elin has extensive experience creating and facilitating programming at the Smithsonian, the National Geographic Museum, the International Spy Museum and most recently the Madison Children’s Museum. Elin is excited to return to the Midwest and build the education and outreach program at the Garden.
