Kathryn Fullerton has been an instructor of Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE)courses at Coast Mountain College since 2010 and, more recently, Human Geographyfor Rainforests and Coastal Communities Field School. Kathryn has a M.A. in Environmental Education & Communication from Royal Roads University and a B.Ed and B.A (Human Geography) from University of British Columbia.
Teaching is Kathryn’s greatest passion. She is delightfully inquisitive and sees herself as a life-long learner. She continues to grow into, and be inspired by, the fields of Early Learning and Human Geography/Environmental Education through her active engagement in the scholarship of teaching and learning, with special interests in the epistemology of how human beings learn and arts based research, as well as through her work as a Learning Consultant supporting children ages 5-15 with a learner-directed, enthusiasm based educational methodology. Prior to moving to NW BC, to teach at Coast Mountain College, she taught in varied and eclectic learning environments. She has also been involved in global professional development activities, including most recent travels to SE Asia.
Outside of work, Kathryn spends expansive parts of her days exploring the vast wilderness on land and water. Times that she is not outside she can be found in her studio space deeply engaged in art explorations with some of her favourite materials...clay, chalk pastels, wool, paper, & found objects. Currently Kathryn's artistry and research is focused on clay as a methodology and practice to center and align with the wisdom of the body.
