Dr. Marilyn Lisowski has been a Professor of Environmental Education at Eastern Illinois University since 1987, and previously taught both high school Biology and elementary school. While as a trainer Marilyn presents workshops in several settings, she most enjoys the ones she holds in her own classroom at EIU. Working with her own students allows her to “follow up and follow through” and even see how they apply the materials in their own classes.
Marilyn was drawn to the PopEd network by the orientation and ethnics of the materials, and also by her desire to provide current and future teachers with well-balanced environmental curricula. Marilyn feels as though her work as a trainer has helped her accomplish these goals and fill an important niche in education. Marilyn encourages other educators to join the PopEd Trainer’s Network, citing the professional development opportunities and interesting experiences being a member provides.
