Think program reviews are easy? It takes a lot of work by a lot of people (and here they are!).

GSNN Board Spotlight: Susan Toth


"I think the green schools movement is one of the most exciting progressive changes in education I have seen in my career as an environmental educator and GSNN is at the forefront of this undertaking - providing leadership and a national forum to advancing this cause.  I am so proud to be a part of it!"
Susan, who's currently Director of Education at Pine Jog Environmental Education Center, Florida Atlantic University/College of Education, continues, "In the near term, I hope that GSNN will continue to provide the nexus for advancement of this movement through its national conference and other modes of sharing best practices and success stories.  In the long term, I look to GSNN to provide research that shows the efficacy of the green schools approach to develop world-class citizens and demonstrates to main stream education systems that developing green school cultures do not take away from the 'standardized' curriculum but rather enrich it."
