Student Stories: Micah Ortiz

Last summer, BHSU senior Micah Ortiz was given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel to Belize for a research project with the University of Central Florida. His work focused on studying sargassum, a seaweed that affects Caribbean coastlines and coral reefs. He also created lesson plans and taught people of all ages at the public library in Stann Creek, Belize. Now, Micah is using what he learned in his current student teaching position back in South Dakota. Check out the video below to learn more about Micah's journey.
