About Michelle Coe

Michelle graduated with a M.A. last year from the School of Geography and Development at the University of Arizona (UA). She began working with the Community and School Garden Program (CSGP) in 2013 as a graduate student, and now works on the SEEC (Supporting Environmental Education and Communities) program within the UA CSGP. Her aim as the SEEC program's coordinator is to directly connect K-12 students in the Tucson Unified School District with UA physical and social scientists and humanities scholars performing cutting-edge, ongoing environmental research at the UA. With the help of CSGP's teacher training workshops, garden infrastructure and interns,  the SEEC program provides students and teachers with the curriculum and materials needed to complete a year-long series of experiential STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) lesson plans, activities, and research projects. SEEC aims to expand teacher-interest in facilitating the incorporation of STEAM into the classroom, and promotes student-interest and excitement in STEAM opportunities for years to come.
