Carol Wellbaum

Science Teacher at Battle Mountain High School

As a science teacher at Battle Mountain High School for the last 20 years, I’ve been involved with WMSC on many levels. I’ve experienced the evolution of environmental education in Eagle County from daily field trips and overnight hut trips to a community focus on sustainability and environmental stewardship. After growing up in Michigan and attending college in California, I moved to Colorado for graduate school in 1990 and settled in the Eagle Valley a few years later. My husband, daughter and I currently live in Edwards. I have a passion for education, where I can help students develop their innate curiosity about the world as they better understand their impact on it.
