Susan Edwards To All Instructors

Susan has always found herself outside exploring the wilds, whether from Oklahoma, where she was born, or in Georgia where the creeks, meadows, and forests were always her home. She studied nature throughout her school days and continued to follow the path of Nature to the river lands of Athens, GA where she studied at U.G.A receiving degrees in both Ecology and Entomology, and an M.Ed with a focus on Environmental Education, naturally :)  

After her studies and international travels with the University she moved to Atlanta for a Naturalist teaching position at Fernbank Museum.  While at Fernbank she was able to travel more in various instructor classes that took her to the Galapagos Islands, Madagascar, as well as throughout Central America.  Susan has been fortunate to teach in a variety of educational settings, from public schools to nature centers, with a wide range of ages during her 20 years of teaching. Most recently after having their children, Susan and her husband, Dan, decided to start their own program in 2015 called Sound of Nature School(SNS) which started as a Reggio inspired Music and Nature preschool in their home and grew into a Homeschool program for students all over Atlanta with numerous offerings from naturalist classes to music studio experiences.  Susan also teaches about plant medicine of the southeast to adults in both Atlanta and Athens.

Susan and her family moved to Athens in the summer of 2021 and enjoys being in this town again immensely and the freedom and connection that both homeschooling and the natural life affords.  Susan is excited to share in her passions with her classes at Firefly.
