Jamie Garaventa has lived in Reno for most of her life. She began her career as an educator working for a local outdoor education non-profit Sierra Nevada Journeys. After five years working in a non-traditional teaching atmosphere she decided to move to the classroom. Jamie is enjoying her time as a teacher indoors, but tries her hardest to maintain her outdoor education roots and bring her students outside to learn as much as possible. Over the years, Jamie has worked with thousands of students, presented at regional and national conferences, she has earned a masters in Teacher Leadership, and is on her way to completing an endorsement for teaching English Language Learners.
