Lloyd Parratt

I earned a MS in Zoology & Physiology from the University of Wyoming, in Laramie. Then I worked a number of years as a Park Ranger, Interpreter, in National Parks across the country, from Wrangell-St. Elias National Park in Alaska, to Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in Indiana, and numerous parks in between.

As an Assistant Professor at Oregon Tech, I particularly enjoy team teaching Bio 111, Intro. to Environmental Science, with Prof. John Ritter. This year I am also instructing Bio 101 & 102, General Biology as well as BIO 233 Anatomy & Physiology labs, in Natural Sciences at Oregon Tech. In addition, I teach a variety of Physical Education courses, including Tai Chi, Relaxation & Flexibility, Wilderness Navigation, Cross Country Skiing, and Snowshoeing. Meanwhile, I've also been teaching courses at KCC such as Health and Fitness, Stress Management, Human Disease Processes, Spanish, Tai Chi, and Relaxation & Flexibility.
