Lunch and Learn with Helene Granof: Marvelous Monarch Butterflies

Helene Granof has studied and taught about Monarch butterflies for many years. As an elementary school teacher, she introduced lessons about Monarch butterflies by raising and releasing them; Helene also traveled to the mountains of Mexico to see them. In this presentation, you will learn about these marvelous and extraordinary creatures, especially because they are endangered.

Helene graduated from University of Michigan as a science major. At George Washington University, she studied to become a medical technologist and spent the next 6 years in a Clinical Chemistry lab at the NIH. After her three children reached school age, Helene became a teacher and taught 2nd and 4th graders for 27 years. Upon retirement, she was a substitute teacher.

For her innovative teaching, Helene received the 1999 President’s Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Helene continues her interest in butterflies, bees, spiders, and other insects as a docent at the Insect Zoo, part of the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum.

Helene and her husband, Gene, have been members of Temple Micah for 54 years.
