Monday, May 13, 2013 “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Hog Island” with Ben and Lynne Mattox of the Talawanda Schools, 7:30 p.m., 2nd Floor Community Room, Lebanon Citizens National Bank, 30 Park Place West, Oxford, Ohio.  

Ben and Lynn MattoxBen and Lynne Mattox, the proud recipients of the AMV scholarship spent a wonderful week at Maine Audubon’s Hog Island workshop for environmental educators this July. During their presentation they will present a slide show documenting their experience and share how the workshop has influenced their teaching of environmental concepts to students this year. They had many first time experiences including bird sightings, geological structures, stars visible only where the lights do not shine at night, as well as botanical treasures, none of which will soon be forgotten.

Ben is currently in his 26th year of teaching science, 24 of those years teaching mostly biology and botany at Talawanda High School. Environmental education has always been an important part of the curriculum in these courses. Ben has a B.S. in Biological Education and an M.A.T. in Biological Science, both from Miami University.

Lynne is currently in her 22nd year of teaching, again most of that time teaching for Talawanda Schools. Lynne is an Intervention Specialist (Special Education teacher), and also includes environmental concepts in her lessons. At times she gets a chance to co-teach and actually teaches science lessons. Lynne has a B.S. in Special Education and an M.A.T. in Biological Science, both from Miami University.
