Joelle Hamilton

Deckhand Educator

Hometown: Fort Collins, Colorado

School: Colorado State University

Previous sailing experience: None yet. Vicarious experiences through Ishmeal.

Previous teaching experience: I have lead college students in the outdoors with the CSU Outdoor Program for 1.5 years. We went on skiing, backpacking, and climbing trips throughout Colorado. Before that, I worked with middle schoolers in an after-school mentoring program. Highlights included teaching a ukulele crash course and lots of basketball.

Why I’m excited to work for World Ocean School: Teaching participants about a human activity that is thousands of years old.
