Isobel has been working with children in various settings for 12 years, including in public schools, as an environmental educator and at Mother Earth School, a Waldorf-inspired school that was based at TLC Farm until June, 2017. She has been living at TLC Farm for five years, and in the NW for 10. Her teaching philosophy is grounded in her knowing that all young children are inherently curious, playful, courageous and loving and have an innate ability to connect with the natural world. Isobel loves to weave her extensive knowledge of the plant and animal ecology of the area, skills in music, herbal medicine, story-telling and art into all of her work with children. Isobel graduated from the University of Oregon in 2008 with a degree in Spanish Literature.
"Teacher Isobel is truly focused on your child(ren) in nature immersion. Isobel is a warm, generous teacher with a lot of stories, wild crafting, and nature immersion experience in Tryon. Your child deserves a nature immersion experience at least once in her/his life! " - Heather Saunders, parent
