Ms. Tara Haelle, science journalist, is our guest today.
With expertise in vaccines, parenting, prenatal and children’s health, mental health, marine biology, test prep, children’s writing, education and travel, Tara is a “Jill of many trades” who is becoming master in a few of them. She has been a photographer for more than 17 years and a journalist for more than 20 years, specializing for the past four years on health and science reporting. She also specializes in writing for children and curriculum development, drawing on her years as a Texas high school teacher and her graduate work in reading comprehension instruction. Since earning her Master’s in Photojournalism at the University of Texas at Austin (Hook ‘Em!), her work has especially included more multimedia projects. http://www.tarahaelle.net/bio/
