After more than twenty years of working with children in a variety of therapeutic settings, I have found Caylin's Forest Schooled e-Learning Packets to be a brilliant tool for engaging adults in the process of story and reflection. Her passion and compassion for creating an optimal learning experience shine through.

I registered for all three of your e-learning reflections. I completed the first one - it was fabulous! I loved reading the PDF and then later listening to the audio. I couldn’t wait to move to the second reflection.
I've been really enjoying the three reflection packs I downloaded. I love how you explore the tensions that come up in forest school, like structure vs. letting the children be totally in charge, our impact on nature vs. letting kids interact, etc.  It has been so helpful in guiding my own responses to those moments, thank you for the gift of your words!
I liked how through real, fun and every day forest school stories, Caylin addressed important topics that helped me to question and reflect about my own forest school practice.

I felt it was very helpful in reminding me to take time and observe students before rushing in to fix a struggle or disagreement. Your work reiterates the strategies I've learned in other nature trainings such as NatureStart. It was a great reminder and asset!
