I have been a science teacher in New Hampshire schools since 1972. I obtained my B.A. from the University of New Hampshire in 1971 with a dual major in Biology and Education. In 1992, I received my MEd with a major in Environmental Education. In 2007, I was honored by the New Hampshire Environmental Educators as New Hampshire Environmental Science Teacher of The Year. Most importantly, I am passionate about engaging and exciting students about the wonders of the natural world . Welcome To Mr. Knee's Webpage
