I am a mom to three children. I have two boys in high school and a daughter who is about to turn 4. I am currently a teaching assistant at Highland Primary and have many years of working with young children under my belt. After the birth of my daughter I became more interested in this growing movement to get children back outside to play freely and feel nature, not just watch it on a screen! I am excited to get out to the park with my daughter and you and your children to have some fun, get a little dirty, and connect with nature and each other.
