Trevor Hance

5th Grade Science Teacher & Outdoor Learning Specialist
Laurel Mountain Elementary School

As the E2 Coordinator at Laurel Mountain Elementary School and adjunct professor of Environmental Law and Environmental Education, Trevor's learning philosophy focuses on actively increasing capacity and science literacy in elementary and middle school students, as well as college-aged learners, through a constructivist learning platform where learning objectives are achieved by connecting students to their communities and the natural world through project-based service learning. In 2016, Trevor received the state of Texas' highest environmental award from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and Governor Greg Abbott for his work in environmental education. Additionally, in the 2016–2017 school year, Trevor's grant writing resulted in $500,000 worth of awards to Laurel Mountain Elementary to develop flexible learning spaces and environmental education and conservation-based learning.
