Hi there! I'm Marisha. I have been a nanny for 8 years for ages 4 months - 11 years old. I have a BA from the University of Washington in early childhood education and family health with a minor in music. I also have some experience in formal school settings, including elementary level tutoring and lead preschool teacher. I've worked in daycares and had internships at the Woodland Park Zoo's Zoomazium, Hutch Kids Childcare Center, and The Pacific Science Center. My main areas of interest in education are in Waldorf, outdoor, and forest schools. I spent a semester in Norway studying outdoor education and risky play and teaching at a forest kindergarten. I am working on completing a Masters in Waldorf Education in a 4 year part time program, which I am currently only one year through. I try to incorporate both the wonder and nourishing qualities of Waldorf schools Read more and the fun, physical exploration of forest schools into my nannying style.
