Meet Our Teachers

Savannah Livengood

Savannah LivengoodI’ve been an environmental educator since 2013, and have loved every minute of it! I taught Environmental Education in rural public schools through AmeriCorps, received my bachelor’s degree in Environmental Education, and have completed certifications in Early Childhood Outdoor Learning Environments, Early Childhood Environmental Education, and Horticulture, to name a few. I am particularly passionate about facilitating child-directed outdoor exploration, and I’m really looking forward to investigating and learning alongside all of our kids this session! I believe that allowing children to guide their own learning and dig deeper into the things they’re really interested in (even if it wasn’t on the day’s schedule) can be incredibly empowering and helps keep them excited about discovering and learning new things! I’ve been working at the Museum for over two years now, splitting my time between the Outdoor Learning Environments and Innovation & Learning teams, and I can’t wait to see what this session of Schoolhouse has in store for us!

Massie Minor

Massie MinorWith degrees in Anthropology and Art History, I am a proud, two-time graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I cut my teeth in museum education in my hometown of Charlotte as an educator at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. Now that I have been with the Museum of Life and Science for a year, I have found that my passion is exploring intersections and binaries with our students – science and art, natural and constructed worlds – they are not as far apart as you think! In my spare moments, I love working with my hands in the woodworking shop, the garden, the kitchen, and in making amaro. And, of course, I love books. Always books! What are you reading?

Shannon Moore

Shannon MooreAs long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for nature and science. I received my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida.  Working in several labs, I have studied a range of topics including entomology, population genetics, and disease ecology. While working as a researcher, I found joy in informal education while teaching local communities about our research. As a fellow with the I&L team, I aim to incorporate my love for nature and science as I work with Schoolhouse, curriculum writing, and other aspects of education at the museum.

Imani Vincent

Imani VincentAfter graduating Elon University with the Class of 2020 and a degree in Public Health, I had no idea what the world had in store for me. I enjoyed learning science when I was younger but when I entered college as a first-year that passion drifted away. After much reflection, I learned my love for science as a child/teen never left, I just needed a new view of it. Not only am I excited to join the team but I can’t wait to meet the kids who will help me while I help them grow their love of science. Ohh.. fun fact, I enjoy yoga and mindfulness meditation.
