Welcome to Tinkergarten! I'm a mom to two girls, ages 10 & 13. I taught first and second grade in Folsom for 15 years, and in 2014, moved out to Placerville with my family and began homeschooling my kids. Living on 2.5 acres in a rural community has given me even more of an appreciation for nature and the need to get out and enjoy it. Tinkergarten gives me the chance to join these passions - teaching children and outdoor play - in amazing ways! Come enjoy learning and playing with us!
