SAN PEDRO, California – San Pedro High School science teacher Jennifer Cheng was named a faculty fellow at a prestigious program of the Green Schools Alliance and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Described by colleagues as “passionate about environmental issues and works to increase environmental literacy among students,” Cheng will participate as a U.S. Green School Faculty Fellow at the 2014 Student Climate & Conservation Congress.

Cheng is one of approximately 20 Faculty Fellows who has been selected from across the United States to represent San Pedro High School at the congress hosted by the National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) of the U.S. Department of the Interior, the nation’s premier conservation training facility.


She will be traveling to Washington DC in late June with three San Pedro High students who have been honored as delegates to the program: Nicholas Rojas, Genavieve Mather, Brianna Carman and Christopher Figuracion.


Cheng and the student delegates said they plan to implement a GREEN SCHOOL model that will include funded projects such as garden, composting, recycling, community service and and aquaponics.

The school will add native garden species, vertical gardening, air quality monitoring and solar panel installation.

The congress will help the delegates acquire skills and ideas in running cohesive and integrative projects of an “Environmentally Friendly Model School on the West Coast.”
