Who is the Forest School Leader?

My name is Melissa and I'm a Level 3 Forest School Leader and a primary school teacher with more than 10 years experience in teaching.  I teach all year groups from nursery right up to year 6.  I have two  children (6 & 4 years old),  who were my inspiration to train as a forest school leader, as well as the children I work with. What better job for an outdoorsy person who loves working with children.


I have seen how those quiet, shy children become confident and independent just by being able to take small manageable risks, like building a den, climbing trees and using tools.
