Prior to joining the Steward Outdoor Day School, Ann was a preK head teacher for the Explorers program at Schoolmates preschool, which is located on the Incarnation Campus. As an Explorer teacher, Ann shared her love of nature with her curious students. On the trails, they made discoveries that would thrill, delight, and often generate questions that led to more learning! In her blog, Barking Frog Farm, she often shares her thoughts and ideas about the benefits of cultivating a connection to nature. Ann has been a board member of the Deep River Land Trust for more than a decade. She is dedicated to the preservation of open space and to making local preserves available to the public. She is on the land trust’s education committee and enjoys planning activities for the community and schools. Ann also guides a Women’s Hiking Club for Deep River Parks and Recreation. As Director of Admissions and Registrar, Ann feels fortunate to be part of the team that will make an outdoor, hands-on, experiential education available to students at the Steward Outdoor Day School.
