Testing the waters with ocean education
Written by Alan Kirby
My adventures after graduating Pittsburg State University have included working for an avionics company, facilitating youth leadership in classrooms, and teaching math and biology at the middle school and high school levels. I’ve been a trusted adviser at Pitsco Education since 2012, visiting schools and meeting with educators to find solutions for improved scores and individual student success. I also instruct hands-on ceramic workshops for adults, teens, and troubled and/or mentally handicapped youth through a local art gallery. I’m always on the go and am an active ceramic artist, bladesmith, certified scuba diver, lifeguard, and Boy Scout leader and Brotherhood member in the Order of the Arrow. I was a contestant on Season 5 of Forged in Fire. And, to top it off, I love to fish!
