Based on your own experience, what did you get out of your time at MOSS and why would you recommend it to someone else?
MOSS was truly an unparalleled learning experience. I grew as an outdoor educator and went on to work in the field for many years before becoming a certified classroom teacher. After MOSS I continued my formal education and completed a Master's Degree in Sustainability Education at Portland State University and a Master's Degree in Teaching at Lewis and Clark College. I am currently a Doctoral Student in Educational Leadership at Portland State University where my research interests are focused on immersive, sensory-based learning experiences in the outdoors. My time at MOSS was a catalyst for my academic journey and provided a solid foundation for my career in this field.
