Kasey Bozeman is a Public Service Assistant and works as the 4-H/Youth Extension Agent in Liberty County. She holds a M.S. in Environmental Education from Nova Southeastern University and a B.S. in Environmental Science from Piedmont College. She is currently earning an Ed.D. in Curriculum Studies from Georgia Southern University. Kasey is responsible for coordinating, developing, implementing, and evaluating the 4-H program in Liberty County. She directs 800+ 4-H youth with project work, leadership, and citizenship activities, camps, conferences and public relations, and manages 50+ volunteers. Her specific areas of interest include working with military families and teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities.
My research interests include curriculum development, non-traditional qualitative evaluation methods, and working with military families, children, and youth. Specifically, my background in natural sciences has led me to explore the ideas of teaching science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities, particularly those topics related to earth and environmental sciences, to children in non-traditional education settings, such as after-school youth programming, nature centers, environmental education programs, camps, etc.
Because I am an off-campus faculty member, my involvement with Watershed UGA is different than most. I will be incorporating the learning modules into in-school 4-H lessons that I teach 6th grade students on a monthly basis. Additionally, Watershed UGA activities will be taught as part of the Liberty County 4-H G-Squared (Going Green) after-school club. Long term, I hope some of these will have the opportunity to visit campus and see some of the ares we have discussed through the workshops. I hope that the experiences youth get while learning about watersheds in both Athens and their local community help them better understand the importance of water for our existence.
