Barry Greenwald is a Chicagoan who has called Minnesota home since he moved there after college. Teaching as a full-time occupation is his third career — after enjoyable years as an agricultural research technician, and later in sales and administration.
He’s now in his 15th year of teaching urban high school students in St. Paul, in courses ranging from biology, IB Biology, environmental science to earth science. He does volunteer work on the World Food Prize Minnesota Youth Institute, as well as local citizen science activities.
Three words that describe Barry:
A grateful father to my daughter; teacher; always on the lookout for good humor.
The dots that he connects:
Barry connects scientists and instructors from the University of Minnesota to high school classrooms. He makes connections for his high school biology and environmental science students between the classroom and their “real lives” — current and future — outside of school.
