Sara Brells – Teacher

I am an educator, guide, Nature-Connected Coach, and committed life-long learner.  My BA in Politics & Government affirmed the belief that guides my professional endeavors: Education is the greatest agent for social change. My career in education launched over ten years ago in the international education sector. I have since had the privilege to work in early childhood, leadership development, outdoor education, experiential education, and most recently as a public school Kindergarten Teacher. I’ve witnessed the joy of a child who realizes for the first time that they can read; learned from indigenous teachers in a rural community of the Ecuadorian Amazon; and stood in awe of young childrens’ intuitive connection with the woods. 

I believe that nature-connection is every human’s birthright and I am passionate about equity of access to nature-connected programming. Children (and adult-children!) learn what it means to show up as their best selves when they are attuned to nature’s cycles and wisdom. I am honored to work with the team at PDX Education Collab on outreach and operational logistics and as a co-launcher of our Outdoor Preschool and Outdoor Adventure instructor.
