Nora has been teaching and gardening with students at Red Hook Playgroup for 3 years. Nora hails from the West Coast but travelled east to attend college at Wesleyan University and never went back. Nora has settled into the rhythm of the four seasons over the years and loves working and learning with children through various scientific pursuits and experiences. She has yet to meet a kid without an innate love for the natural world and considers it a job of the utmost importance to foster this curiosity. Throughout her time at Red Hook Playgroup, Nora has become enthralled with RHP's investigative approach and has deeply enjoyed her experiences exploring the big ideas behind, and more nuanced entries into, a wide variety of student-selected topics. Nora is looking forward to her fourth year as Science and Garden Coordinator and her first year as Blue Room collaborative teacher.
