The NBNC Team
Sue grew up on the Jersey shore swimming, surfing and enjoying the sun and sand. She was also lucky to have access to a beautiful patch of woods to explore. Here she found her love of nature. When her parents couldn't find her they knew she was catching frogs, building shelters, or checking out rocks. College took her to the Adirondacks where she fell in love with the wildness of nature. Ultimately back in New Jersey she received her degree from Rutgers University and pursued a career, but the woods were calling. Sue moved to Vermont, got her Masters in Education, and began her 34-year career teaching young children, including for many years at Barre Town Elementary School. Because Sue believes that children learn best in and through nature, she didn’t feel her career would be complete until she worked for an outdoor- and nature-based program. She is excited to join the Forest Preschool team as a part-time teacher.
