So why a turtle, you ask? As an environmental educator and a biologist, the turtle holds a very special place in my heart. The turtle is a symbol of the Earth. It is old, steadfast, and strong. And (much like snowflakes) as no two children are exactly alike, each turtle has its' own intricate, unique pattern. No two are alike. A strong teaching practice builds on a strong personal philosophy, and my personal teaching philosophy has been build on a strong, deep, connection to the Earth.
