I am a wife, busy mom of three, and an Early Childhood Outdoor Teacher.
Helping teachers create a calmer and more joyful classroom by incorporating nature and outdoor learning fires me up!
I have taught for 15 years.In Indiana and Florida, My first classroom was 2nd-4th grade gifted and talented, then I found the crazy, fun, and entertaining world of kindergarten and I was hooked!
When I started having kids, I felt burnt out, overwhelmed, I took 2 1/2 years off from teaching and loved being home with my kids, but something was missing!
Then outdoor learning was introduced to my life and I was hooked! It gave me the balance I needed to bring joy back to my teaching.
For the last 3 years, I have taught outdoor learning Pre-K and kindergarten and absolutely love it. I feel I have found the secret to a calmer and more joyful classroom by incorporating nature and outdoor learning. I feel led to share what I have found, tried, and tested to help other educators restore their joy in teaching!
My husband, Matt, and I have been married for 16 years and we have 3 amazingly unique kids! Mattie is 9, Annabelle is 6, and Abey is 3.
