Teacher Directory: Molly O. Hoopes


With a Bachelor of Arts in Art, a Master of Arts in Teaching, and teacher certification in Biology, I have spent many years teaching science to adolescents and young adults, art in a psychiatric rehabilitation facility, and after-school, summer camp, and homeschool classes about Nature and Environmental Education through art activities.  I enjoy hiking through the woods of Baltimore, observing wildlife, taking photos of pollinators, and drawing flowers.  My medium of choice is graphite and watercolor, but I am starting to experiment with scratchboard and pencil.  Secretary of Forests for Monarchs, an organization that plants trees in and near the monarch butterflies' wintering grounds in Mexico, I teach workshops about the endangered phenomenon of monarch butterfly migration. 

I am available to facilitate Nature and Art birthday parties, after-school programs, summer camps, teen or adult workshops, homeschool enrichment classes, interpretive Nature hikes, Nature Preschool activities, and field trips to Mexico to see and draw monarch butterflies and tropical plants.
