Antique Boat Museum, Clayton, NY
February 10 at 2 p.m.

I have worked at the Nantucket Historical Association, Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, and currently the educator at the Antique Boat Museum.  I have earned a MA in History Museum Studies from the Cooperstown Graduate Program.  As the educator I plan and implement summer camps, sailing programs, boat building programs, symposiums, oral histories, and other educational opportunities.
The premier freshwater nautical museum in the US, we focus on recreational boating on the St. Lawrence River and the 1000 Islands.

As educator, I develop and implement educational programs for a wide variety of ages, skill levels, and diversity of experiences extending to the immediate community of Clayton and the great community of boats around North America.
During the winter season my main focus is on the immediate community and outreach to the schools and weekend teen programs. This includes writing curriculum, special camps including Feb. Break, and Teen Nights.

During the summer I become more of a manager working with a seasonal staff of 10 or more. I oversee Camp ABM, the Sailing School, the skiff livery, Boatbuilding courses, and special event opportunities.
