I am excited for Lisa to share with you a little bit about herself and her reason for joining Forest Kids. She has been with us since September, so many of you already know her and her commitment to the children and our Forest School philosophies. I am so pleased to have her as part of our team!
A little bit about me... written by Lisa :)
Why have I chosen to become involved in forest school? Well the answer is simple for me... as a child I rarely have a memory of myself playing indoors. My adventures were in the sandbox, playing street hockey with my brother or going camping. I loved spending time outside, exploring, and I still do today :)
Outside of being busy as a full time educator at many centres around Nanaimo. I also find time being board president of Pacificcare. If your unaware what Pacificcare is - it's a child referral and resource centre that provides support to families, as well as care providers.
I also like to be busy with the Nanaimo Theatre Group. Still trying to work on my stage fright so until then I remain behind the curtain helping the actors and stage manager. I invite you to come see the pantomime at Christmas, this year we are showcasing Aladdin and the Pirates.
Lastly I love spending time with my friends and family. They are very important to me.
I look forward to many adventures with your children as I get to know them and they get to know me :)
