When children have regular opportunities to experience nature they grow a better understanding and appreciation of how to healthily interact and live within the natural environment.

As a teacher, I greatly value listening to children and giving them gentle guidance and a warm and encouraging space to follow their interests and try new things. I believe that every child can and should be able to experience the wholistic benefits of the Forest School philosophy, regardless of their access to a traditional program... and I hope this class will allow us to bring the wonder and joy of nature to your child, wherever you may be, and however you are able to bring them outdoors.
Students should come to class with an unlined notebook to use as their nature journal, and the drawing medium of their choice (colored pencils, markers, pencils, pen, etc.) Students should also bring one item collected from outdoors to share with the class (a rock, feather, flower, leaf, etc.)
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
