In this webinar, we welcomed Jenny Leibham, Founder of Nature Play Lifestyle. Jenny dove into the key role observations plays in the classroom, including the importance it has in building connections between children, educators, and the curriculum. Jenny also shared techniques educators can use to help slow the classroom down and capture learning in action.

She also provides professional development to other nature-based teachers. She has a special love of play and spontaneity in teaching, as well as a personal joy of jumping in puddles!
