I've been looking for the next direction in life, a way to combine my years of experience working (playing) with kids with my desire to live closer to and more in harmony with the earth. I think Tinkergarten is it! My 6-year old spirited daughter is my inspiration and motivation. She thrives in the outdoors and I've noticed a big improvement in my own mood and well-being when I spend time in nature. I value the power of play, following the child's lead, and expanding on what they show interest in. I have lots of experience with children with special needs and different learners. I'm excited to share my passion with you!
