Before becoming a science teacher at Switzerland County High School in Vevay, Bonnie Fancher taught in an inner city school, acquired a degree in civil and environmental engineering and worked as an environmental engineering consultant. Mrs. Fancher shared her love of nature, stewardship and evaluation of natural resources with her young students, using a hands-on approach to promote motivation. Her environmental science course engaged students in a variety of real-world projects, such as monitoring local bodies of water and supplying data to state agencies. Mrs. Fancher also created a Technical Chemistry course modeled on a workplace laboratory facility, helping students build workplace skills and encouraging post-secondary training.
