Glenn Howe
Camp Director

Glenn is a born and raised Oakland native who knew he wanted to be an educator from early on. He earned his bachelor's degree and teaching credential from Humboldt State University, and has been exploring new, fun ways to work with kids in his hometown ever since. During the school year, when he’s not sailing to Mexico, hiking the Pacific Crest Trail or attending clown school, Glenn works at San Francisco Maritime National Park as the Education Programs Manager and supports a staff of sailing instructors, youth boat builders, interpreters, living history performers and overnight field trip leaders on a wide variety of historic ships. Glenn started out with Galileo 7 years ago as a Star Science instructor, and this will be his 6th year as Camp Director at Galileo Summer Quest, Oakland.
