Liz Pidgeon

Assistant Teacher

Liz Pidgeon joins Granby Nature Preschool with a Bachelors Degree in Art Education and a background in child care. After many years of nannying, teaching in a daycare and working with children in Costa Rica she believes that utilizing a child’s natural curiosity and their inclination to explore, experiment and problem solve can be the greatest way to reinforce concepts to children that are fundamental to their development. Liz often spends weekends with her daughter, husband and their dog, Bowie, exploring the outdoors and traveling.
