Meet the Staff

Summer Camp, Homeschool, and Field Trip Instructors

Our staff is an eclectic group of educators and community leaders. All of our instructors have a great rapport with children and a deep interest in helping children discover the wonders of food, agriculture and the environment. Together they have a wealth of experience and a vast knowledge of environmental education. Instructors are either experienced teachers, certified teachers, or Elementary Education students in their last years in college. Before the instructors begin, we have an extensive period of training which includes certification in First Aid and CPR. Here at Fernbrook, we are extremely proud of the competence and compassion of our staff.
