Annaliese Bischoff was an associate professor of landscape architecture who also taught in Commonwealth Honors College at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She studied art and German as an undergraduate at Brown University and holds an advanced degree in landscape architecture. Bischoff taught an honors thesis project course on sustainable public art; an honors special topics seminar: “Through the Lens of a Cup;” a landscape architecture course on history and theory of the built environment; and junior year writing. She applied a five sense teaching approach in her classroom for her students to fully engage in their learning.
Bischoff didn’t plan to be a distinguished professor, world traveler, prolific leader in the sustainable landscape and public art movement, or frontrunner for women in the landscape architecture field. However with each opportunity taken, she has shaped her own career path by seeking new experiences that aligned with her personal passions in life. She encouraged her students to do the same. Bischoff remarked, “I love to help students find out what they want to do and be part of their journey.”
