 Meet the Editors

Jeanine Clark Bremer

Interest is in environmental history, specifically coral reef policy. Florida's John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary are dear to me and my intellectual pursuits. However, I am currently finishing an Ed.D. that focuses on teacher education. While teaching history, I discovered that I was inspired by the preservice teachers and wanted to work more closely with them. This prompted a career change and while I have retained my passion for coral reef policy intellectually and through being an avid SCUBA diver, I am working in the College of Education now. My pet project for the network is developing teaching resources for the members. There is a treasure trove of existing material and resources on Florida history that I would like to accumulate and make available through the network. I am hoping to encourage network members to share existing Florida based assignments so that we can share and learn from each other. 

I am currently in my second term as VP of Teaching for H-Net.
