I have a background in education, having taught various grades and subjects from preschool-10th grade. While my formal degree is in middle childhood education, it is in my early childhood course work and experience that I found my passion. I firmly believe in the power of play and all it has to offer a young child. Some of my fondest memories of being a classroom teacher are watching my students explore, persevere and master. And witnessing the pride they feel in themselves. And I can not fathom a better environment to witness this in than the outdoor classroom.
