Her passion in teaching is focused on environmental and ecological issues particularly those related to sustainable design, storm water management and brown field redevelopment. She has taught graduate and undergraduate design studios and seminars in digital media, urban design, site development and construction. When not teaching, Carla is gardening with her family and furthering her interest in promulgating environmental awareness and interest in young children.
