Sean is a 4th and 5th grade Math and Science teacher at Gifft Hill School on the beautiful island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. The best part about his job is that he has the privilege of working with an extremely diverse student body in a vibrant island community. He has a passion for environmental education and uses his favorite PBS resource “Make a Mangrove’ to teach students about sustainability and the conservation of limited island resources. His goal as an educator is to cultivate strong minds and caring hearts through academic rigor, compassionate community and experiential learning.
