Patricia (Patti) Brown – Education Director
Patti has been the Education Director at TNI since 2002. She is the EEAI past president and facilitates many different educational projects and teaching curriculums. Patti  loves environmental education with all age groups and especially loves educating at TNI about nature. Her biggest pet peeve is people that throw garbage out of car windows!

Ramona Puskar – Education Assistant
Ramona is the newest member of the TNI team. She has over four years of environmental education training and experience. Some places she has worked include the Cincinnati Nature Center in Milford, OH, the Dunes Learning Center in Chesterton, IN, and Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site in Collinsville, IL. She loves working as an environmental educator and believes that the best way to save our planet is to instill a love and respect for nature in children and adults of all ages through firsthand experience and exploration.

Andrea Leach – Camp Staff Coordinator
Andrea has been a part of the Discovery Day Camp Staff since 2005. She loves TNI and looks forward to working every summer camp season. During the rest of the year, she teaches 3rd grade at St. Mary’s School in Alton. Andrea says working at TNI Camp is what inspired her to become a teacher.

Assisting the directors are 13 outstanding young individuals we call Senior camp staff. For information about the Senior Camp Staff click here.
