I’m a teacher exploring how to bring more science and nature to my students. I believe strongly in the importance of playing and learning in the outdoors. This website explores some of the reasons why nature play is so vital for childhood development. I also review children’s literature related to nature and science. And I use it as a gathering place for teacher resources related to creating joy, wonder and inquiry-based experiences for young children.

I believe that nature can bring so much to both children and the people they learn from – joy, wonder, healing, engagement, peace. I’m dedicated to helping nature-based education move from a privilege for a select few, to a central foundation of all teaching and learning.
