Andrea Searcy, BS
Adjunct Faculty, Lab Manager
BS in Biology, emphasis in pre-med (1995) – Idaho State University; Pocatello, Idaho
Andrea has been teaching the non-majors biology course at Waldorf University for 16 years, and has held the position of Lab Manager for 6 of those. She serves as the Faculty Student Senate Advisor and received the S.E.A.L Award for Outstanding Group Advisor for the academic year of 2019-2020. Andrea's passion at Waldorf University are the students, who she readily admits, are the best part of any day.
A native of the South Eastern Idaho desert area, Andrea grew up enjoying the great outdoors, which included river rafting, rock climbing, spelunking at Craters of the Moon National Monument, hiking, motorbike riding, snowshoeing, downhill and cross country skiing, camping in the snow and spending copious amounts of time in a cabin near the Yellowstone Park area where 11-14 feet of snow at Christmas time was common. Although she loves all the seasons, when spring arrives, she is always a little wistful to see the last of the snow melt.
The best part of being at Waldorf University is getting to take the students out into nature at Pilot Knob State Park as part of the biology class, where she enthusiastically teaches the students how to see the seasonal differences in plants and animals that can be found anywhere they might live.
