My hope is to be able to offer Sprout and Blossom classes at different schools and locations in my community. I want as many children as possible to develop a love for nature and an interest in planting seeds and watching hem grow.
I hope these classes will inspire children and parents to grow together.
Hi! I'm Gloria, born and raised in Redlands CA, and I am so excited to be offering gardening enrichment classes and subscription boxes for children.
I have worked as a preschool teacher and elementary paraeducator for 14 years. I have over 30 units in early childhood education.
In 2018 I earned my BA in Public Relations, I previously worked at Gardenworks For kids in Yucaipa CA, where I wore many hats from managing the social media to creating fundraising events. I also created and implemented curriculum for various programs on site.
I have created Summer Day Camp programs, Outdoor Learning Days, and other programs to get children into the garden and outside enjoying what nature has to offer.
Technology is great, there are so many wonderful resources, some of which I use for supplemental activities. However, nature is better! I believe that children, now more than ever, need to get outside to play, learn, grow, and explore.
