Hannah Sears

Forest School Educator

Hannah joined us in February of 2021 as a Forest School Educator. She graduated from NBCC in 2019 with Industrial Mechanics and worked at the Irving Saw Mill until deciding she wanted to change careers. Hannah fits right in with the children, loving the outdoors and nature. Her love of horses led her to buying her own farm where she teaches riding lessons with her horses Dodger, Spendzer and Jack. She lives in Lower Millstream with her partner Jared, their pup Honey, cats Mr Kitty and Mrs Kitty, a barn cat named Gus and 120 different varieties of chickens.
