Hello! My name is Shelly. I grew up in Southern California, and moved to the Bay Area almost 5 years ago. I have 10 years of experience in education and I am mom to two girls (3 yrs and 3 months old). Growing up, I spent a lot of time playing outside with the neighborhood kids, and going camping with my family. I strongly believe in the importance of learning through playing outdoors. I want these experiences for my own children, and I want to share my love of the outdoors with others by helping children make important and lasting memories while creating, discovering, and tinkering outside. I am so excited to bring Tinkergarten to Martinez, CA.
