In our last episode, we are off to Wyoming.
Mark Roy wasn't always a rural teacher, but being remote is comfortable to him. He likes to be out in the backcountry. He now teaches 7th and 8th grade science at the Fort Washakie School, on the Wind River Reservation.
He tells us about his transition to teaching, being a teacher on a Native American reservation, and integrating nature and wilderness ideals into his classroom.
