Bio
I am a certified Illinois teacher, avid gardener, and lover of nature.

I am deeply concerned about the future of nature on Earth. I believe the children of today can save our beautiful planet.

Children are naturally curious about their surroundings. Unfortunately, many are spending an unbalanced amount of time away from nature looking at ‘screens’. On average, this can be as much as seven hours per day! http://www.screenfree.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/screentimefs.pdf
This unbalance can create Nature Deficit Disorder (NDD), https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-38094186. NDD is a fairly new phenomenon which can cause (among others) anxiety and depression.

This year my goal is to educate parents on the symptoms and treatment NDD which correlates directly to little time spent in nature.

My hope is to call attention to the beauty of nature to all those I meet.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mrjamespollard7@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
