Lindsay’s everlasting curiosity and love for the earth took root during the summers she spent as a child in the Adirondack Mountains. The vast land of lakes and forests were her summer teachers and the freedom found there guided her to live and teach in Vermont. She has a BS in Environmental Studies from UVM, which led her to the Lake Champlain Waldorf Kindergarten, working with long time educator JoAnne Dennee. In the three and half years spent at LCWS she was able to learn from a mentor and develop her own style of teaching that weaves outdoor education with early childhood development and hands-on experiential learning. This approach shines at Wren’s Nest Preschool, where Lindsay uses a child centered outdoor curriculum and acres upon acres of land to create rich and diverse learning experiences. 

She is happiest when in the forest, in any season, with the sound of laughing children following close behind.
