"Juliet, thank you--I did join the group on Facebook. Thanks for letting me know about it. :) For now, my idea is that this would be during lunchtime because I want to counsel at the secondary level but eventually I could do lessons. Thanks again!"

Bio
Hello! I am a graduate student at Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho. My goal is to become a school counselor for junior high or high school students, and I really want to incorporate my passion for nature into my work with kids. My dream is to create lunch-time nature walk programs, gardening programs, and more--just anything to get kids outside to enjoy nature. I am so excited to have found the C&NN and I can't wait to share ideas with you!
