The NBNC Team

Arianna spent a lot of her time as a child in and around the woods and brook by her home. Long-lasting memories were created while catching frogs and salamanders and building shelters in the winter. This fostered a love of the outdoors in all seasons. Arianna moved to Vermont to attend the Early Childhood Education program at UVM. During her student teaching she began to connect two of her interests; teaching children and being with nature. She holds a Level I teaching license in the state of Vermont. Arianna participated in the ECO Institute course at North Branch Nature Center which inspired her to follow the nature based education path. Arianna joined the NBNC team as an ECO teacher in 2019. She has moved on to become the Director of Forest Preschool for the 2021-2022 school year! She believes that all children should be given the opportunity to experience and form a connection to the natural world. Arianna intertwines nature based education, yoga, and mindfulness while working with children. In her free time you can find her hiking, swimming, or skiing with her dog Lilah.
