"Adam’s unique combination of knowledge and enthusiasm has allowed him to create a truly rewarding educational experience for students of all ages. His passion for the creatures of Florida and the importance of protecting them and their environment for future generations is evident from the moment his presentation begins. But this experience is not a mere exhibition of environmental protectionism. Adam’s experience as a teacher has provided him with the knowledge of Florida educational standards needed to tailor his presentations to specific learning objectives. His time in the classroom led to the development of a rapport with students that keeps them engaged and motivates them to learn more. His enthusiasm is infectious, and I predict many students will leave this adventure with dreams of pursuing their own careers in environmental science."
