Meet our Leader: Dawn Manzo

I grew up in Pennsylvania, lucky to be surrounded by woods where I spent hours climbing trees, building forts and making mischief with my friends. I am now a nature-loving New Yorker of 15 years, a certified early childhood special education teacher, and mom to two spirited kiddos. I am thrilled to bringing together my passions for working with kids and families and learning in nature through Tinkergarten. Let's learn outside!

Highlights

  • Hometown: Brooklyn
  • Leader Since: Winter 2016

5 / 5

Just great flow, pacing, energy, balance, seeing other kids, seeing Jenna, the songs, the visuals, etc. Technology and resources and planning all are working smoothly to give a great experience.

Carin M.

5 / 5

Leader was warm and knowledgeable. Love that the weekly Zoom class is just one aspect of the broader curriculum. Also appreciated that she gave guidance that it was okay to play in whatever way the child chooses, no need to make them stay on topic or keep their body still - that's super stressful as a parent!
