Rick Reynolds has been a passionate educator and developer of educational resources for 25 years. The author of Marco the Molecule and The EverGreen Twins Activity Book, he has created numerous curriculum resources and provided consulting for organizations such as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), PBS Education, the National Park Service / The River Mile, SOLVE, Oregon Nikkei Endowment, Inspiration Software, Clackamas County Vector Control, and One More Generation.
While most of his professional life is now spent developing lesson plans aligned to standards, multimedia content, websites, and e-learning resources, Rick has taught nearly every grade and subject, preK-12. For example, he served as an elementary teacher and technology integration specialist for a number of years, as well as a high school teacher of social studies, science, and technology for five years at the high school level. He is a licensed educator in Oregon and Connecticut with these endorsements: Elementary, Middle Level, Social Studies, Technology Education, and Administrator. He holds a M.S. in Education from the University of New Haven and a B.A. in Geography from the Honors Program at the University of Connecticut.
In addition to helping educators and young people, Rick loves exploring the outdoors, gardening, tennis, community service, and spending time with friends and family, especially his lovely wife, Krista, and sweet kitten, Pepper. A Connecticut native, he feels fortunate to have lived in beautiful Oregon since 2001.
