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.
Bringing Forest School for all to Hertfordshire, Essex, North & East London.
