International Educator: Lisa Niver Rajna

 

Dr. Jessie Voights interviewed me for the Profiles in International Education Section on her site Wandering Educators. Read about me on Wandering Educators!

Here is the beginning of the Interview:

Lisa Niver Rajna is our Geography Awareness Editor, a world traveler, and a science teacher in Los Angeles, California. Think that science isn’t international? Think again! I’m impressed with the work that Lisa does with her students – exploring the world, and the people in it. She’s the publisher of two websites that combine her love of travel and teaching science – We Said Go Travel, and Science Isn’t Scary. She embodies the true meaning of international education – and practices it every day.
