My job title on the summit is Weather Observer and Education Specialist. While I am most known for my work as a Weather Observer, acting as a Education Specialist is just as important. In this roll I am able to connect with students from around the country and teach them about Mount Washington’s unique weather. For many schools, traveling to the summit is out of the question, but with Distance Learning programs I can bring the summit to them. Using video conferencing technology, remote locations are no longer out of the question for people to explore and learn about.
