How did Evergreen help you in your career?

The MES Program was my best educational experience. Besides learning very much about many environmental issues and matters, I learned much more about teaching and writing. I became a prolific professional writer after my TESC experience and over the years I have tried to stimulate my students to write, and write well, using many tips, insights and techniques that I picked up at Evergreen.
