Child observes moth

Instructor:  Ximena Puig (Mon/Wed) and Susana Ruder (Tues/Thurs).  Susana is an early childhood educator, also trained in Waldorf education. She runs a forest program for children in Viroqua. Her biggest passion is to witness wonder, peace and the joy of discovery in children of all ages when they are in contact with nature. Ximena has a master's degree in early childhood education from Oberlin College and has taught both at Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School. Right now, she is a full-time mother to two bright-eyed little boys.  She feels that giving children the opportunity to fall in love with the natural world is a gift not only to the children, but to us all, our collective future and to mother nature.
