Hello! I am so excited to be welcomed into the Tinkergarten family and be able to offer other families such an amazing experience. I am a former elementary school teacher who left the classroom to be home once my son was born. A few years have gone by and I realized how much I miss the interaction and witnessing all the "light bulb" moments that a child has during their learning. My family's love for the outdoors combined with my passion for teaching made Tinkergarten a perfect fit. I am excited to share my passions and take families on amazing outdoor learning adventures! It's going to be amazing!
