My journey as an educator began working with children from city schools as an Environmental Educator in the New England region. For many students this was their first experience outside of the metropolitan area. I would spend days in the woods with them exploring the forest, wading through streams, teaching ecology and team building. I saw the spark of excitement light up in their eyes. These were powerful experiences and I realized that my passion to connect children with their natural world lead me to want to create more meaningful and long term connections. I enrolled in the Masters of Education program at Antioch University New England, which focused heavily on integration, project and place based learning, creating constructivist curriculum and building a responsive classroom community. I completed my Teacher training in 2012 at Southwest Charter School as an intern with the Middle School program, which focuses on place based education. I am passionate about getting students out into the community and using our local neighborhood as a classroom. I love hiking and camping. I am very fond of fairytales and tall trees.
