As a longtime fifth grade teacher at Chancellor Livingston Elementary in Rhinebeck, NY, Chantal Collins has taught hundreds of children about ecosystems and human’s connection to the Earth. She helped created a marine science unit that included a class field trip to the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. More recently she started an environmental club for fourth and fifth graders which led to a new recycling program in the cafeteria as well as participation in the 2019 DrawDown EcoChallenge.
