Michelle Kara

Michelle is a native Californian who graduated Magna Cum Laude from San Jose State University. While attending there she received the Presidential Scholarship award and was ranked in the top 1% of the entire university.

Michelle loves camping and hiking with her two dogs and plans to utilize this love of the outdoors on many of the field trips with the students. She is dedicated to social justice, environmental conservation, and animal welfare and passes these values on to her students in thought provoking ways.
