Nature and learning has always been an important element to my family. For years as an arts and music instructor for children ages 4-12, I worked to explore learning and play, to engage children and explore their passions and joys. Later as a lead teacher for the 4-6 year old after school program I got to unite my passions of nature, arts, science and exploratory learning into one. Sharing this experience with these young minds was a joy every day. Now with my infant son we work to bring that early play based learning in with everything we do! Laying the ground work that play is learning and learning is FUN!
