Melissa’s Bio

I have a great deal of experience working with children : from the age of six years to seventeen years. My passion is outdoor education - which is where I have experienced the value of learning in ways that are exciting and innovative. The last four years have brought me from one naturalist job to the other - from Summer head Naturalist at Audubon Greenwich summer camp, to Farm Curator at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center - to Marine Science Educator at SeaCamp (NHMI). As you can imagine these roles placed me in positions of great responsibility and required a degree of creativity.

I am a College Graduate and have a BS in Biology and Marine Science.

Up to date certifications include: cpr, red cross first aid, oxygen and AED, lifeguard, SCUBA and yoga instructor

I am also a 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher with the yoga alliance. I am looking forward to bringing children's yoga (if desired) to play dates and after school/ evening activities into our community. Yoga is an incredible way for kids to become grounded - yet have a lot of fun while keeping healthy. Please feel free to email me with questions pertaining to this specific activity.

I enjoy having fun! I love crafts - making forts - going on walks and hikes - telling stories .

Some of my favorite bands: The Grateful Dead, Phish, Strangefolk,

I expect a degree of respect from the children that I care for - which will always be mutual.

Wanted: awesome kids
