Tinkergarten provides high-quality early childhood learning in the healthiest classroom of all—the outdoors. Families connect with trained leaders in their local community for play-based kids classes that help develop core life skills, all while having fun!
Since my son started exploring on his own, it has been such a joy to see him using his senses to make sense of the world around him. I really value being outdoors and creating great outdoor moments with my own family and hope that I can help provide that to Tinkergarten families. I now have a second little boy and I can't wait to see him start enjoying the outdoor world. I have been an informal educator for the past 15 years at the New England Aquarium. I now supervise our Student Programs, where I not only ensure that we are providing great hands on standards-linked programs but that our programs create a positive experience with the natural world for all the students in our programs. I am a Massachusetts native; grew up in Framingham, lived for 8 years in Reading and now live in Tewksbury. I look forward to getting to know more local families in our community and exploring, playing, and learning outdoors together!
