about us


it’s a wild story

Hi there! 

We are the Tidd family, and we love learning outside! We are lucky to have the lakes and creeks in the Finger Lakes Region of NY to explore!

Prior to founding Wild Learning®, Rachel obtained extensive teaching experience as an elementary special education teacher and as a homeschool parent. She is currently a doctoral student at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in Educational Sustainability. Additionally, she earned a Master’s degree in Elementary and Special Education from Bank Street College of Education and a B.S. in Environmental Science from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. She enjoys walking in nature (alone!), good books, handwork such as knitting and basket making, traveling, and strong coffee. Learn more about us on IG and FB @discoverwildlearning.

Rachel’s sons, Finn and Taro were what originally inspired Rachel to take math and later reading outdoors!
