Zemaitis, a long time and dedicated employee of the
Memphis Botanic Garden and a member of our Youth Education Department, was
awarded the Educator of the Year for the State of Tennessee from The Tennessee
Environmental Education Association (TEEA). TEEA is a non-profit
organization dedicated to promoting environmental education programs throughout
the state. Its goal is to develop a world population that is aware of the
environment and committed to work toward solutions of current environmental
problems as well as the prevention of new ones.
Kristen began working as a MBG camp assistant at the age
of 16. Her college studies took her all over the United States from Boston to
Georgia, to the Smoky Mountains where she sharpened her skills through studies
and teaching. After completing her degree in Natural Resources Management
with a concentration in Wildlife Biology, Kristen returned to the Garden as a
full time employee in 2000.
