Britt Shellenberger

Outdoor Ed Teacher

Britt Shellenberger grew up in the Skagit Valley and after traveling and living elsewhere has returned here to raise her family. She is happy to call this beautiful valley home again, with all of its natural diversity and beauty. Britt welcomes the opportunity to discuss and nurture the growth of the human spirit. She views challenges as opportunities and ‘failures’ as necessary. By being able to sit with challenging situations and allow the growth of each person, she is well suited for work with children. She is driven by this passion to understand others and uses it to continually find new and interesting ways to engage the whole child. Britt has been with Greenwood Tree from the beginning, serving in various positions in the community, and two years ago began the weekly outdoor education program for Grade 2. She will be continuing this outdoor program for Grades 3 and 4 this year and will be teaching the Home-school Enrichment program for Grades 2, 3, & 4; The Dandelions. Britt graduated from The Evergreen State College with a degree in Cultural Studies, in 1999 and furthered her education at Western Washington University and the North Cascades Institute, graduating with a MEd in Environmental Education and Non Profit Administration in 2003. These studies have supported her passions and challenged them.
