Tao-Ning Dolly Lee


I myself knee-deep in outdoor education (and mud) after following my son’s lead. His sense of wonder and curiosity brought us into a world of learning through nature, opening the door to adventures that had a profound impact on our entire being and taught lessons that only nature could offer.

Outdoor education became a bridge connecting my passion for social-emotional development and the magnetic pull I felt towards teaching.

I believe the necessary ingredients for seeds to break through their shells are no different for humans. Soaking up the sun, water, and fresh air nourishes us and guides us towards infinite possibilities. I am grateful to have witnessed the countless seeds that have sprouted at Calleva over the past seasons and looks forward to enriching the soil for future seeds to grow.
