Sheris Patten

I’m a Montessori teacher during the school year as well as a mom of two. I’ve been in love with the outdoors since my teenage years and every moment in the outdoors has been a impactful time. My passion is to give every child a moment, to embrace all the special things the outdoors can provide and instill hope that they will be the best caretakers of it in the future. I find that natures classroom is the best teacher and My focus is to guide them through it using all their senses. I’ve been teaching on and off for 15 years and find myself alway learning something new around another tree branch, and that’s why I love it!
