Theresa Van Veelen
Since the completion of my thesis research in 1999, I have been teaching here at Muskegon Community College. Teaching is exciting and fulfilling for me! As one who strives to challenge students for meaningful learning, I will continue to provide a variety of learning experiences for students in hope of developing and increasing their science literacy.
Water has been a continual theme in my life - from being raised on a lake in Indiana, working with Muskegon Lake Areas of Concern to my Master's thesis research, a two and a half year water quality study of Spring Lake, Ottawa County, MI. My hope is to continue working with the local community in an effort to preserve and/or improve the water quality of our water bodies.
I enjoy canoeing, backpacking, primitive camping, soccer, and most outdoor activities.
