"In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." -Albert Einstein. My name is Sophie and I have a bachelor degree in education. I was a middle school teacher for seven years before I moved to San Diego. My favorite childhood memories take place in a forest, near a lake with my best friend in Belgium, where I grew up. After a year and a half of leading Tinkergarten lessons with me, my sons-Basile (5) and Maceo (3) are still passionate about nature treasures and making mud! Their love for nature inspired me to become a Tinkergarten leader in the first place! I also love yoga, music, hiking, camping, making new friends...and would be honored to share our love for the outdoors with you and your little ones!
