Wildschool Director: Kirstin Dalton, email@example.com
My name is Kirsten and I’m Korbin’s mom, a former nurse and craft-aholic. I live in Smithfield with my awesome husband, our awesome 8 year old kiddo and our bull terrier (who is also awesome but also- spoiled) I grew up on a farm in CT and spent the majority of my childhood outside in the woods, in the garden or taking care of the animals. I have a deep love and passion for sharing the beauty of nature and it’s become a major part of our homeschooling journey this past year. With everything opening up- the next step is Wildschooling groups!! We’ve had such an incredible time with Into the Earth in CT and we’re so excited to get involved here in RI too. We’re new to homeschooling but I’m very excited to come up with some fun activities and put together some quick and fun info sessions to encourage a closer bond to the land around us and get us exploring. I’m going to do my best to bring unique activities to the group to keep from creating too much redundancy with other groups so we can enjoy them ALL! Some of my passions include canning (making jams, jellies, pickles etc) and I have a small leather carving business. I’d love to bring these things in to share with you all along with some other ideas I am cooking up! I look forward to meeting you in the woods!!!
