Genevieve Ploch

Raintree School
Forest School Early Childhood Educator
St. Louis, MO
Genevieve Ploch spent her childhood playing in creeks, trekking through the forest, and building snow forts during Midwestern winters. This love of nature is now shared with young children as an educator at Raintree School, a Reggio-Inspired Forest School in St. Louis, Missouri. Having previously worked in a variety of school settings including urban and suburban public schools as well as private schools, her experience as a Forest School teacher has made her a strong advocate for the important role nature plays in the lives of children.
