This issue of NASET’s Practical Teacher was written by Lauri Brunto, MA Ed. Lauri A. Brunton has an MA Ed. in Environmental Education and previously worked as an educator, community organizer, and writer in the field of urban greening. She is currently pursuing a certification as a reading specialist from Arcadia University.Her article is the story of Henrietta’s Workshop, based on her real-life mentor and teacher Regina (Jean) Byrne. The story that follows has been tweaked, shortened and, of course, fictionalized, but the underlying message remains true to her experiences. Even though the events did not take place in a traditional classroom for children and youth, she felt it would be a more authentic representation of what helped shape her learning and teaching philosophy because it represents her actual experiences.
