Jemicy has been my teaching home for so many years that it is hard to describe this wonderful school effectively in this space. The school website provides all the basic information to understand the scope of its history, mission, and current programs.
I take lots of photos at school, documenting classes and activities. Some of my favorites are of kids at play, embodying what founder Margaret Rawson called “the experience of the good life in childhood.” An album of recess photos from my Facebook page can be found here: Jemicy recess
In 2010, I completed a PhD in environmental studies through Antioch University New England with a case study at Jemicy. My focus was on how community values support outdoor play, with themes of environmental education, biodiversity and sustainability woven throughout the study. It was the launching pad for my 2016 Fulbright-supported investigation of sustainability and biodiversity education in New Zealand.
