Ruth Jessup has always loved playing with children. She has four young boys of her own. Mothering is a delightful and challenging passion in her life. Previously working as a physical therapist, she served children ages 0-3, helping with development. Since the birth of her third child she has chosen to stay at home to be with her children and is so excited to be able to offer Tinkergarten classes to the Walla Walla area. Her motivating factors are to engage children, make each child feel cherished, and to have fun in nature. With joy, she welcomes children and parents alike to join these fun classes that support the whole family in growth, well being, and wonder.
