For the past six years I have been a classroom teacher and outdoor learning specialist at Laurel Mountain Elementary school, and recently began a new adventure as the Enrichment and Environmental Learning Coordinator for the campus. It will be an exciting time, and I look forward to supporting the great work done by the exceptional teachers on our campus as we expand our learning model in a broader fashion to include some of the new learning spaces on our campus that include a teaching kitchen, pollinator garden, nature playground, and outdoor learning studio. I'll post more as things unfold, but I wanted to get the blog up and running, as it is the place where I reflect and report on what we are doing.
With our new spaces open and in (heavy!) use, we have a wonderful and wild year ahead of us. Check out my latest "Wild in a Minute" video about the Excellence Fund and contact me with any questions you might have.
As always, thanks for your support for our work here at Laurel Mountain, and a special thanks for contributing to the Excellence Fund!
