I am an Environmental Educator and I have taken the leap to go freelance taking environmental education workshops in schools and setting up The Natural Playground. I teach primary and nursery school children. I also take after school clubs and holiday programmes.
I can take workshops in schools, supporting teachers in the Eco schools programme and tailor my workshops to the needs of the school and the children. My aim is to bring nature into the classroom and get young people inspired and passionate about the outdoors!
I taught environmental education in New Zealand and the positive response from the children was overwhelming. During my time as a classroom teacher it became noticeable that the more engaged the children were in their outdoor activities, the more engaged they were in their overall learning.
