I am a grade 7 math and science teacher, and I dedicate as much time as I can to the outdoors. I have been exploring in the mountains for about 5 years now. Hiking and scrambling is what really saved my life. I am a super slow hiker, but I always set realistic expectations, and reach my goal. I love backpacking as well. One of the things that rings be joy is taking out friends on my hikes, and seeing the love for the outdoors grow!
