(Q) Scared of furry animals

Words from me:  I love playing with kids and seeing their ‘a-ha’ moments. I also love seeing them learn and grow, and most of the times, I get to learn a lot more in turn too. In Forest School, there is so much for them to learn and pick up. Seeing their struggle and determination in learning and trying makes me happy because they are learning something that can bring them far in life 🙂 Knowing that makes me happy.

(Q) I love gummies

Words from me: Education to me, is about distinctions. The different colors of innumerable leafs, the gradients of the land, the smell of different types of weather and the never ending wonder of nature. These are the exposures that fascinates and captivates the young minds of an generation that will eventually take over the nation from our hands. I just want to be a part of an effort that educates and empowers, every child could be that beacon of light the future needs.

(Q) Plays the Chinese flute

Words from me: Most of us only possess an intellectual understanding of Nature – her residents, functions of her parts, and survival mechanisms. While that is important, I think what’s very much lacking today is an experiential understanding. Only through experiencing, being with Nature can one develop that intimate connection and see how we are a part of, and not separate from her. I think forest school is one of the ways we can develop this.
