Working with ANSM over the past three months has been a wonderful experience. I came into this experience with a visitor’s knowledge of Nova Scotia museums and a deep appreciation for the work that you do to promote our shared culture and heritage. That knowledge and appreciation has grown as I’ve learned more about the work that goes on behind the scenes.
To say that I’ve enjoyed applying my experience working with children to planning learning activities feels like an understatement. It has been exciting to see the #NovaMuseEd project launch, and I am confident that the activities we’ve created together will enrich the educational experience of Nova Scotian students. What a great accomplishment!
In the future, I’ll be continuing to offer preschool and before and after school programming for children and families in Dartmouth through a not-for-profit society called Penhorn PALS. My business, which will soon be renamed The Owl’s Nest Nature School, will continue to offer preschool programming, day camps and summer camps. I’m also looking forward to volunteering with ANSM to complete a few more learning activities. Hopefully we’ll get to meet in person someday soon.
