Glad you stopped by!! I'm a mom to two wild, silly girls and we LOVE to be outside. I have a degree in elementary education as well as special education but have been enjoying subbing and being a mom. As my oldest has grown, she has taught me that nature is a great teaching tool and very, very fun. This is what led me to Tinkergarten and I'm so glad it did! Please stay awhile and let me know if you have any questions! P.S. My daughter also showed me how to rock a worm mustache!
