April Cheuvront is an 8th grade teacher from North Carolina who has participated in snow-related research projects in the Rocky Mountains, Arctic Canada, and Arctic Alaska. In 2002, she participated in a Nome-to-Barrow snow-measurement field expedition (traveling via snow machine), where she was responsible for a National Science Foundation (NSF) education and outreach program in the villages and schools along the traverse route. Cheuvront's participation on this expedition was supported by NSF through the "Teachers Experiencing Antarctica and the Arctic" (TEA) program. This experience provided knowledge of snow, arctic conditions, and experience communicating Arctic science to broad audiences via web-based technologies, as well as village school rooms.
She currently resides in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of North Carolina where she teaches Science at Avery Middle School. When not studying snow and teaching school, April is busy raising her three children and three dogs in the outdoors. She is an avid runner, cyclist, and swimmer. She also enjoys hiking, backpacking, camping, traveling, and cross-country skiing with her family.
