She also is a Professor Emeritus (retired ... but active) at Bowling Green State University and continues to hold a joint appointment in the departments of Teaching and Learning and Environmental Sustainability. Jodi's journey in education began as a middle and high school science teacher and coach in the public schools where she served for nearly a decade. She spent the next 22 years on faculty at BGSU. Dr. Haney's research and professional work focus on motivation and engagement for deep and long-lasting learning, resulting in 40+ publications and 90+ presentations. Jodi has taught numerous science education, curriculum, technology, and environmental studies/sustainability courses at BGSU and was runner-up for the BGSU Student Alumni Connection Master Teacher Award in 2014. A productive grant writer, Haney has earned and directed over $20 million in local, state, and federal funding to support science and environmental education programs. She has worked with well over 100 schools across Ohio and the nation as an educational consultant. Jodi believes that teaching is the essence of her identity and she is passionate about her role to inspire the love of learning through active, engaged, and authentic experiences both within the classroom and the local community. Her favorite hobbies include spending time with her family and friends and she enjoys ALL THINGS OUTDOORS (biking, gardening, hiking, vacationing in warm places).
