Welcome to Tinkergarten! I'm Kara! I’m a licensed K-8 teacher and children’s fitness instructor. (Gymnastics, rock climbing, martial arts, and everything in between!) I’m also a mom and my family prefers being outside to just about anything. In my childhood, freely exploring nature and getting a little messy was my favorite way to learn and play! Decades later, running freely and exploring is still my favorite way to spend my time outdoors! Tinkergarten is just that! I love how Tinkergarten brings families together to explore, learn and play in our beautiful local parks. I live by the words, "Adventure is out there!" and I'm excited to share our Tinkergarten adventures with our community. Don't hesitate to email with any questions! I love welcoming new families to Tinkergarten!
