Caleb KulfanAugust 14, 2018
IB Environmental Systems & Societies Teacher
B.A. in Natural History and Ecology, Prescott College
Caleb came of age amongst the forests, lakes, and creeks of northern Michigan. He spent his formative younger years at Interlochen Arts Academy, a high school similar to VVS but much less fun. After graduating, Caleb spent two years serving with AmeriCorps as part of the National Civilian Community Corps program. As both a corps member and team leader, he completed projects all along the eastern U.S. such as trail building, infrastructure improvement, wildfire fighting, disaster relief, and much more. From there, he attended Prescott College where he studied Natural History and Ecology as well as Adventure Education. While at Prescott, he also started a Master in Education, which led him to VVS in the spring of 2015 as part of a teaching practicum. He spent some time working as a park ranger at Grand Canyon and a river guide in Colorado’s Rockies before returning to VVS full time in the fall of 2016. He taught freshmen Big History and Physical Science for two years, and this year will be taking over as the IB Environmental Systems and Societies teacher for the juniors and seniors. He is ecstatic to finally start combining his two passions for education and the natural world.
